    Frozen Pumpkin Mousse Pie

    While pumpkin pie deserves respect as a Thanksgiving icon, it’s fun to shake up tradition. Surprise your family and friends with a frozen pie this year—it just might become one of their holiday favorites. No need to let them know how easy it is.


    • 30 small gingersnap cookies, about 7 1/2 ounces
    • 2 tablespoons raisins
    • 1 tablespoon canola oil
    • 1 cup pumpkin puree, canned
    • 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated
    • 2 pints low-fat vanilla ice cream, 4 cups; frozen, softened


    Step 1
    Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-inch deep-dish pie pan with cooking spray.
    Step 2
    To prepare 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.
    Step 3
    Bake the crust until set, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
    Step 4
    To prepare 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.
