Award Winning..

I entered this pie in our annual family pie contest, and it won second prize! Everybody loved it. My one suggestion would be to not use all the butter that the crust calls for. I had to make the crust twice because the first one was way too buttery. Other than that it was great, and it will live on as a family favorite

Pumpkin Mousse Ice Cream Pie

Most of the young children I know don't really care for traditional pumpkin pie. But I made this for guests, substituting vanilla wafers for the gingersnaps, and the kids couldn't get enough. They asked if it was difficult to make and I invited them back next weekend, without parents, when we'll have a baking party and I'll teach them how to make this.

Needs some pizzazz!

I loved the gingersnap crust, gave the pie great flavor, but the mousse is a bit blah. I added a pinch of nutmeg along with 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground coriander--what a difference!

Pumpkin Mousse Ice Cream Pie

This was a great (and easy) addition to our Thanksgiving dinner. The kids especially liked it.



It was over 92 degrees here today and I wanted to make something cold and tasty without too much work.This was PERFECT! I cannot believe that something so EASY could taste so good! I even ate some of it before it was fully chilled. WOW! We all polished it off tonight. EXCELLENT!
