Caramel Pecan Ice Cream Dessert

My Nana passed this old-time recipe on to me because she knew I’d want to make it. I love desserts, especially this one!

I have made this often so here’s a tip, the crumb mixture can be made ahead and stored for a later time.

This dessert is deliciously different and decadent and a little portion will go a long way.

Makes about: 12-15 servings.
