  • For Crust:
  • 30 small gingersnap cookies (about 7 1/2 ounces)
  • 2 tablespoons raisins
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • For Filling:
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 2 pints (4 cups) frounceen low-fat vanilla ice cream, softened (see Tip)

directions

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

For Crust: Combine gingersnaps and raisins in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Add 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 Filling: Combine pumpkin, sugar, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg in a large bowl and mix well. Add 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 to 30 minutes before serving.

Tip: To soften ice cream quickly, microwave on Medium-Low for 30 to 60 seconds.
