Ginger Pumpkin Chiffon Pie

Healthycooking's picture
ginger pumpkin chiffon pie is a spiced pumpking pie. Chilled to prepare instead of baking, this lovely pumpkin pie is made with a gingersnap crumb base. Sweetened with sugar and made with a milk, gelatin and egg mix, it is cooked and chilled to set.
Ingredients
  Non stick cooking spray 1
  Gingersnap crumbs 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Evaporated skim milk 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Unflavored gelatin 1⁄4 Ounce (1 Envelope)
  Ground ginger 1 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Egg yolk 1 Large
  Solid pack pumpkin 1 Can (10 oz)
  Egg whites 3 Large
  Cream of tartar 1⁄4 Teaspoon
Directions

Lightly coat the bottom and sides of a 9 inch pie pan with the cooking spray.
Place the gingersnap crumbs into the coated pie pan.
Tilt the pan from side to side until the sides and bottom are lightly but evenly dusted with the crumbs.
Refrigerate while you prepare the filling.
In a small saucepan, combine 1/4 cup of the sugar and 1/4 cup of the milk; sprinkle the gelatin and ginger evenly over the surface and let soften for 5 minutes.
Set the saucepan over moderately low heat and cook, stirring, for 5 to 6 minutes or until the gelatin and sugar dissolve.
Remove from the heat.
In a small bowl, beat the egg yolk and remaining milk together, then slowly whisk in the hot gelatin mixture.
Transfer the mixture back to the saucepan, set over low heat, and cook, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes or until slightly thickened; be careful not to boil or the mixture will curdle.
Transfer the filling to a large bowl, blend in the pumpkin, cover, and refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mixture mounds slightly when dropped from a spoon.
In the large bowl of an electric mixer, beat the egg whites and cream of tartar at moderate speed until foamy; slowly add the remaining 1/4 cup sugar and beat at moderately high speed until the whites hold soft peaks.
With a rubber spatula, fold the egg whites into the pumpkin mixture and spoon into the crust.
Refrigerate at least 8 hours before serving.
