Better than your Mom's Pumpkin Pie

Sorry it took so long to get this posted. Time to run back to the mad house at the store and buy more groceries. I made this recipe up on my way to the store because I had no clue what to make for the Sportman's Warehouse demo. Everyone sure loved it and I hope now it becomes a family tradition in your house because this Pumpkin Pie is "Better than your Mom's"

Pie Crust-
12 oz. box of ginger snaps, crushed
1 stick butter, melted
1 tablespoon sugar

Pie filling-
Large Can Pumpkin
2 8oz Cream Cheese, softened
2 cups sugar
3 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400` F. Meanwhile in a food processor add ginger snaps and pulse 4-5 times until a crushed to a crumb constancy. add melted butter and sugar until well combined, 1-2 additional pulses. Place crumbs into a deep 9" pie pan and press evenly and up the sides. Set aside and let rest 10-15 minutes.

In a large bowl mix together all Pie filling ingredients until a smooth consistency, pour into ginger snap pie crust. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Let cool and top with whip cream or ala mode with vanilla bean ice cream.

**Picture will be posted after Thanksgiving since I will be making this again and I didn't get any pictures the other day.
