What to Do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F 
  2. Make the crust by mixing together the butter, brown sugar and vanilla. Gradually add flour. Fold in chopped walnuts. Mix until fully incorporated, do not overmix. Grease a 9-inch springform pan and then press crust into the bottom of the pan and up ½ inch on the sides. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. 
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the caramel. In a large saucepan, whisk together brown sugar, cream, butter and salt. Bring to a boil and stir for 1 minute. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla. Cool completely. 
  4. Spread ½ cup caramel sauce onto the crust, and allow to cool for five minutes. 
  5. If the ice cream is not already soft, spoon it into a larger bowl and stir for a few minutes. Once softened, spread ice cream over the crust and caramel layer and freeze for 15 minutes. 
  6. Make topping by cooking ½ cup chopped walnuts, maple syrup, 1 tbsp caramel, and salt in a pan over medium heat. Cook until walnuts are toasted and syrup is caramelized, around 10 minutes. Top the ice cream torte with the walnut topping and freeze covered overnight. 
  7. Serve with additional heated caramel sauce.
