Ingredients

For the crust

  • Cooking spray
  • 30 small gingersnap cookies
  • 2 Tablespoons raisins
  • 1 Tablespoon canola oil

For the filling

  • 1 Cup pumpkin purée
  • 1/3 Cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 Teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 Teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 2 pints low-fat vanilla ice cream

Directions

For the crust

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9-inch deep-dish pie pan with cooking spray.

Combine the gingersnaps and raisins in a food processor and pulse until chopped finely. Add the oil and pulse until blended. Press evenly into the bottom and up the sides of the prepared pan. Bake the crust until set, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

For the filling

Combine the pumpkin, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg in a large bowl and mix well. Add the ice cream and stir until blended. Spoon the mixture into the cooled pie crust.

Freeze until firm, at least 2 hours. Let the pie soften slightly in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes before serving.

Pumpkin Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Pumpkin Cooking Tip

Vegetable should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
