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?

Thanks in advance

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


    Those textures make more sense to me.

    1. re: maxie

      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..
