    A rich, fancy twist on pumpkin pie. From the Seattle Times newspaper. Don't let the number of steps put you off. It is really quite easy. Prep time does not include chilling time.

      I thought the Grand Marnier would add a subtle fruity liqueor taste. Instead it was overpowering and tasted like we were doing shots of booze. Sorry, I wouldn't make again. Only a few people in my family could even finish their slice.

      Make a day ahead - after 24 hours in the fridge, the Grand Marnier flavor intensifies....this will become the most wonderful pumpkin pie you've ever had! Very rich and dense, even using fat free evaporated milk, and the gingersnap crust is yummy. It's delicious with cinnamon ice cream but I'd like to try the Grand Marnier whipped cream next time, and maybe make mini tarts.

      fabulous pumpkin pie, tried it after bf insisted we don't buy a pie for thanksgiving this year and i'm glad we didn't! the recipe doesn't specify what brand or size of gingersnap cookies, so i guessed and used a 300g bag of gingersnaps and it worked fine for the recipe. we ran out of orange peel and did without but it still tasted great. we also loaded up on the spices. oh also, i learned the hard way that trying to whip cream with grand marnier in it takes a LONG time, so i would STRONGLY suggest whipping the cream with the sugar and vanilla first and then folding the g.m. in AFTER. thanks for the recipe! :)
