1-15 ounce can of pure pumpkin
1 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream

1 cup gingersnap cookies and about 8 gingersnap cookies that are whole
1 tablespoon melted butter

Separate the whites from the yolks.
In a medium-sized glass bowl, whisk egg yolks until they are creamy.

Place in a double boiler and cook the custard mixture; stir until the custard has thickened.
Dip the custard into either an 8 x 8-inch baking dish or into 8 custard dishes.
Bake in the oven for about 30-35 minutes. It is done when an inserted knife comes out clean.
After 15 minutes of baking remove pan and sprinkle on the top a combined mixture of one cup gingersnaps and one tablespoon melted butter return to the oven to finish baking.
For individual custard dishes check the custard at 20-25 minutes. Sprinkle the gingersnap mixture on after 10 minutes; continue baking.
Allow the custard to cool to room temperature.
When you are ready to serve, mix the whipped cream and pumpkin pie spice topping by whisking together the one cup whipping cream, one tablespoon granulated sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice; whisk until thickened.
