A nice variation on regular pumpkin pie. Is good with whipped cream, but ice cream works well, too.If you use a graham cracker crust instead of gingersnap, try adding some ginger to the cream cheese filling mixture.

<p>@Arlenetim26.....yes. The pumpkin acts as the added liquid and thins it out. I make one very similar every year. Great taste and very easy to make. People will think you spent hours :)</p>

I have a question about this recipe - 1 cup of milk and 2 pkgs of pudding - is that really correct? Can someone help - I'd like tomake it for Thanksgiving but that did not seem right to me???

I put the gingersnaps in a big ziplock bag and pounded them with a hammer and they were done in no time. :) and yes I'd increased the milk also.
