      This is a wonderful light pumpkin pie. I didn't know what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. I'm so happy to find a delicious, lighter recipe for my favorite type of pie this time of year. Thanks for posting, V!

      Ahhh. We loved this! I had a few reservations about this dish. I thought that, with nothing to bind it together, the crumbs would fall off the pie part. But that didn't happen and the pie adhered beautifully. I was also a tad worried that it would be too spicy. It wasn't at all. Great pumpkin pie flavor! Thanks for one we'll make again!

      Recipe was great. Easy to make. A wonderful alternative to make pumpkin pie more "legal". Good flavour. Sprayed some no-stick cooking spray over the gingersnaps to make them bind a little.
