Festive Pumpkin Pie

I tried a new recipe today. Ricky loves pumpkin pie and I know that I will never be able to make one like his mom. This has happened before on pinto beans , Ricky said "There good but not as good as my mom's" and so that was the end of my pinto bean making. So, I found a recipe for a frozen pumpkin pie, I love frozen pies and he loves pumpkin so it should be a match made in pumpkin pie heaven.

Its still in the freezer but the prefrozen tasted really good. Here's the recipe

Festive Pumpkin Pie

2 cups of crumbled ginger snaps

1/3 cup of melted butter

1- 15 oz can pumpkin

1-7oz jar marshmellow cream
