Pumpkin Pie With Gingersnap Cookie Crust [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan




6 slices


For the Gingersnap Cookie Crust

  • 2 cups gluten-free gingersnap cookies, crushed
  • 2 Tbs. sugar
  • 6 Tbs. vegan butter, melted

For the Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend

  • 3 Tbs. ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1 ½ tsp. allspice
  • 1 ½ tsp. ground cloves

For the Pumpkin Cream Cheese Pie

  • 8 oz. vegan cream cheese, softened
  • 1-15 oz. can pumpkin
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup vegan whipped cream
  • Extra whipped cream for topping


For the Gingersnap Cookie Crust

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Put the cookies into a resealable bag. Think of someone who irritates you and crush them into crumbles by whacking them with a rolling pin. Then roll the pin over the bag until you have small crumbles. Transfer the cookie crumbles to a bowl. Add the sugar and the melted butter and mix well until it feels sticky.
  2. Cover the bottom of a pie plate with the crumbles. Press them firmly into the plate with the back of a spoon or a potato masher. Bake for 10 minutes until the crust is just browned a bit. Remove from the oven and let cool completely before filling.

For the Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend and Pumpkin Cream Cheese Pie

  1. Combine all ingredients except the whipped cream. Beat with the mixer until smooth. Gently fold in the whipped cream. Spoon the mixture into the pie shell and smooth it out.
  2. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour or until it has set up firmly. It will set up best if given several hours or even overnight. Decorate with gingersnap cookies and/or whipped cream, if desired. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream.





When Rhea became vegan, there were no places in her Bronx neighborhood to eat so she had to learn to cook, mostly by watching TV cooking shows, especially Christina Pirello and Rachael Ray.  That led to the creation of The "V" Word website which focuses on vegan versions of favorite, familiar foods. Rhea has written several e-cookbooks which are available on her web site. It is Rhea's hope that she can spread the "V" Word to bring more compassion into the world and it is her dream to become the vegan Rachael Ray.
