Pumpkin Icebox Pie with Pistachio-Gingersnap Crust

Directions

  1. Prepare Pistachio-Gingersnap Crust.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl sprinkle gelatin over the water. Do not stir. Let stand for 5 minutes. In a large mixing bowl beat pumpkin and cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.
  3. In a small saucepan combine evaporated milk, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves. Bring to simmering over medium-high heat. Add gelatin mixture, stirring until gelatin is dissolved. Gradually pour milk mixture into pumpkin mixture, beating until smooth. Pour pumpkin mixture over crust. Cover and chill for at least 6 hours or until set.
  4. In a medium mixing bowl beat whipping cream and powdered sugar on medium speed until soft peaks form (tips curl). Spread whipped cream over top of pie. Sprinkle with pistachio nuts.

From the Test Kitchen

Prepare as directed through Step 3, except cover and chill for up to 3 days. Before serving, prepare whipped cream as directed in Step 4 and spread over top of pie. Sprinkle with pistachio nuts.

Spice up your whipped cream by adding 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon. Out of pistachios? Use almonds (or your favorite nut) instead. Go nuts: Chop 1/2 cup pecans and sprinkle on top of pie for an extra nutty finish.

This was really good. I was worried the gelatin might make it too jello-y but it was the perfect creaminess. I did, however, make the mistake of casually picking up unsalted pistachios, so the recipe was definitely lacking something: salt. There is a touch of salt in the pumpkin part but not enough to carry it through. I also thought I had evaporated milk on hand and didn't, so I used coconut milk instead. Tasted fine. The next time I make this I might also add another half recipe to the crust as I like more of a crust.
