Cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg mixed with pumpkin bring a tasty flavor to this Thanksgiving favorite. For a delicious topping on this made-over fall classic, try a dollop of low-fat sour cream sweetened with a pinch of sugar and cinnamon. Baking the pie on the lowest oven rack will help to cook the bottom of the piecrust. This pie can be made ahead of time. In fact, if you let the pie sit overnight, it will strengthen the flavor of the ginger. Serve the pie at room temperature.
