Snappy Pumpkin Dessert

Jill Cooks


This one is a little different. The crust is made with gingersnap cookies instead of flour like most. Got this one from an old magazine 12 or more years ago.I like to use french vanilla pudding when I make this. It just gives it a more richer flavor. Always requested!!
