  • In well-greased 9-inch pie plate, place 1 roll in center; press with a spoon to stretch. Place remaining rolls around center roll; press to stretch and cover bottom and sides of plate. Press to seal seams of rolls. Line crust with double-thickness of foil. Bake 5 minutes. Remove foil. Press again with spoon to flatten any puffing that occurred during baking. Bake, uncovered, 5 minutes or until center is set.

  • For filling, in a medium bowl mix pumpkin, sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Add eggs. Mix just until combined. Gradually add half-and-half; mix until combined.

  • Carefully pour filling into pastry shell. To prevent over-browning, cover edge of the pie with foil. Bake for 50 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool completely on wire rack. Cover and chill after 2 hours. Serve with whipped cream and sprinkle with additional cinnamon.

Tips

For a foolproof no stick crust, line the bottom of the pie plate with parchment paper. Place a sheet of parchment paper under the pie plate, trace around the bottom of the pie plate with a paring knife to make a circle, then place the circle in the bottom of your greased pie plate.
