Let's Make This Recipe!

Ingredients
  • Crust
  • 15 small to medium sized ginger snaps
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons Tillamook Unsalted Butter, melted
  • Filling
  • 1 (15 ounce) can of pumpkin
  • 2 large eggs + 1 yolk
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup half and half
Directions
  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 350°F. Combine the ginger snaps, brown sugar, and salt in a food processor, pulse to combine. Once the ginger snaps are crushed, drizzle in the melted butter, and pulse until dough comes together.

  • Step 2

    Lightly grease a 9-inch, and then press all of the cookie mixture into the bottom and up the sides. The layer should be about ½ inch thick. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Allow the crust to cool for 15 minutes before filling.

  • Step 3

    In a large bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree and eggs. Add the sugar, spices, salt, and the half and half.

  • Step 4

    Pour the filling into the pie shell and bake at 350°F for about 1 hour.

  • Step 5

    Allow the pie to cool completely before serving with a big scoop of Tillamook Caramel Butter Pecan Ice Cream.
