Pumpkin Meringue Pie

Hey everyone!
I am looking for an amazing pumpkin meringue pie recipe, preferably with a crust that is not traditional (maybe gingersnap or graham cracker).. I found this, and am wondering if anyone has tried this recipe or similar? http://www.bhg.com/recipe/pies/ginger-pumpkin-meringue-pie/

Thanks in advance

    I don't have a tried and true recipe for you, but in reading your post, I imagined a pumpkin chiffon pie like this: http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/20... topped with a blow torched Italian meringue (brown sugar if you want

    )

    Those textures make more sense to me.

      I thought of that. But when I askedmy family they said no, they like the texture of a traditional pumpkin pie, but they just wanted some meringue on top. I think I will do a blow torched italian..

      I guess I should just investigate to find a really solid pumpkin pie base recipe, and maybe a good crust I can sub in for the traditional..
      Thoughts?
