Easy Pumpkin Pie

Lodge Cast Iron | October 23, 2017

Skip the pumpkin spice and let this flavorful, two-ingredient crust do all the work. All you need to make this simple pie is some spicy, crunchy, store bought gingersnap cookies and some melted butter! No rolling, transferring or crimping required. If you can’t find gingersnaps or don’t like ginger, reach for some cinnamon graham crackers instead.
