Pumpkin-Gingersnap Chiffon Pie

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups finely ground gingersnap cookies Nabisco®, about 27

  • 3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar divided, Domino®

  • 5 tablespoons butter melted

  • 1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin Knox®

  • 1 cup evaporated milk

  • 1 package cream cheese softened, 8-ounce

  • 1 can pumpkin 15-ounce

  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • Garnish: pumpkin pie spice

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate with nonstick cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine cookie crumbs, 1 tablespoon sugar, and enough melted butter to moisten crumbs; toss with a fork until moistened. Press crumb mixture in bottom and up sides of prepared pie plate. Bake for 8 minutes, or until almost set. Cool completely on a wire rack (about 45 minutes).

  2. In a medium bowl, combine remaining 3/4 cup sugar and gelatin. In a 2-cup microwave-safe glass measuring cup, place milk. Microwave on HIGH for 1 1/2 minutes, or until milk begins to boil. Pour over gelatin mixture; stir until gelatin dissolves (about 5 minutes). Let cool for 15 minutes.

  3. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Add pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, and salt; beat until well combined. Slowly beat in gelatin mixture. Pour into cooled crust. Chill for 5 hours, or until set. Garnish with pumpkin pie spice, if desired.

RECIPE NOTES

Note: When pumpkin mixture is almost set, gently swirl top of pie with the back of a spoon for a decorative effect, if desired.
