Last week's (ok, it might have been longer than that; I'm verrbizz) cookie pie crust was pretty amazing, so I decided to do the same sort of thing but with pumpkin pie. The proper cookie base for Thanksgiving/pumpkin is, of course, gingerbread, so that's what we're making here. If you don't like gingerbread (because I know some people don't, bless their hearts), you can easily and deliciously sub this cinnamon cookie crust in for this. If you don't like pumpkin, I'm very sorry.
