Pumpkin Chiffon Pie


  • Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

Scale
  • FOR THE CRUST
  • 1 1/4 cups finely crushed graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup apple sauce (one individual container)
  • FOR THE FILLING
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 1 1/4 cups unsweetened pumpkin puree
  • 3 eggs, yolks and whites divided
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

  1. For the crust, mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, and press the crust mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch pie plate, pressing the crumbs up the side of the plate. Chill until the crust is firm, about 30 minutes, while you make the filling.
  2. Pour the water into a bowl, and sprinkle the gelatin over the water. Allow the gelatin to soften in the water for about 5 minutes. Combine the pumpkin, egg yolks, 1/2 cup of sugar, milk, salt, ginger, and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon in a saucepan, and mix until smooth. Heat the mixture over medium-low heat until it almost reaches a simmer, and cook until thickened, stirring constantly, about 5 minutes; stir in the gelatin and water until the gelatin is dissolved. Remove the mixture from the heat.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until they form soft peaks; gradually beat in 1/2 cup of sugar and the vanilla extract until the mixture is glossy. Lightly fold the egg whites into the pumpkin mixture, keeping as much air in the mixture as possible. Scoop the pumpkin mixture into the graham cracker crust. Chill several hours or overnight.
