Frozen Pumpkin Mousse Pie
This past Tuesday as I sit in the doctor's office waiting to have my annual painless "Softer Mammogram" and there sits this recipe, so I picked it up. It sounded easy to make and delicious too, so I thought I would try it out.
This pie may be healthier but that doesn't mean it isn't less tastier. Wow, the gingerbread crust is full of flavor and the mousse filling is very flavorful too. Now I am not sure I used pumpkin puree and will check next time I am at the store. It is what my husband picked up, so I used it. I topped with a little cream and toffee bits.
