  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and set a rack in the middle position. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  6. Arrange half of the crust crumbles evenly over the bottom of an ungreased 8-by-4-inch loaf pan. Pour the ice cream mixture over top, then cover with the remaining crust crumbles.

  7. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze at least 8 hours or overnight, until completely firm.
