Pumpkin Pie Milkshakes

During Thanksgiving week 2009, I was invited to appear on Live with Regis and Kelly to give some ideas for using up holiday leftovers. When they handed me part of a pumpkin pie, I was inspired to make a milkshake. Everything went into the blender — the filling and the dough. After all, I thought, some ice creams include cookie dough. And to my surprise, everyone loved it. I also like chocolate with pumpkin. If you do too, add some chocolate sauce to the garnishes. You might want to serve the shake in small glasses alongside a pie or cake, such as a pumpkin-spice or apple cake, for a holiday dessert. Yields 4 servings.
