Granny's Gingersnap Pumpkin Pie

Granny's Gingersnap Pumpkin Pie

This is one of my favorite recipes for Libby's canned pumpkin, although you can opt to use fresh pumpkin instead. I used to help my Granny make this pie when I was a little kid, and I hope to make it with my kids one day. What makes it better than other pumpkin pie recipes is the crust...gingersnaps are delicious!
