Flash from the Past...Ice Cream Cake Recipe

So my daughter is a Halloween baby.  Yep, born on Halloween.  When the kids were young, I would make an Ice Cream Cake for their birthday cake.  A recipe from family had become our family tradition for birthdays.  Years passed and the birthday tradition slid into the background almost forgotten.  Ahhh, but not this year.  As it is the Birthday girl has requested to have this flash from the past for her birthday and to share with her young family. 
Now where did I put that recipe???
Ice Cream Cake
I package of Keebler Pecan Sandies Shortbread Cookies
