Fluffy Pumpkin Pie recipe
1/2 cup sugar
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice*
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 can pumpkin
1 cup Cool Whip
1 baked 9-inch pie shell, cooled
Combine sugar, gelatin, pumpkin pie spice, and salt in saucepan. Blend in milk. Cook and stir over medium heat until sugar and gelatin are dissolved.
Gradually stir mixture into egg. Blend in pumpkin. Chill until very thick. Then fold in the Cool Whip. Spoon into pie shell.
Chill until firm — about 3 hours. Garnish with a wreath of chopped walnuts and raisins, if desired.
* Rather than pumpkin pie spice, use 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon ginger
