2 tablespoons raisins
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
⅓ cup packed brown sugar
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
2 pints (4 cups) frozen low-fat vanilla ice cream , softened

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-inch deep-dish pie pan with cooking spray.

  • To prepare crust: Combine gingersnaps and raisins in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Add oil and pulse until blended. Press evenly into the bottom and up the sides of the prepared pan.

  • Bake the crust until set, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • To prepare filling: Combine pumpkin, sugar, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg in a large bowl and mix well. Add ice cream and stir until blended. Spoon the mixture into the cooled pie crust. Freeze until firm, at least 2 hours. Let the pie soften slightly in the refrigerator for 20 to 30 minutes before serving.
