  • 22 gingersnaps (about 5.5 oz)
  • 1 tbsp butter or stick margarine, melted
  • cooking spray
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 3 cups cubed peeled butternut squash (about 1 small)
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup frozen reduced-fat whipped topping, thawed


  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. To prepare the crust, place the cookies in a food processor, and process until finely ground (to yield about 1 cup). Add the granulated sugar and butter, and pulse 8 times or until combined. Press crumb mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 6 minutes; cool on a wire rack.
  3. To prepare filling, place water and squash in a microwave-safe dish. Cover with wax paper; microwave at high 12 minutes or until very tender, stirring after 6 minutes. Drain and mash.
  4. Combine the squash and the next 8 ingredients (squash through eggs) in a medium saucepan. Cook mixture over medium heat until thick (about 8 minutes), stirring constantly with a whisk. Pour the mixture into the prepared crust. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes or until set; cool pie on a wire rack. Top each serving with 1 tablespoon whipped topping.
