over medium heat.
Meanwhile, whisk egg yolks with cornstarch and remaining 1/4 cup sugar in a medium bowl.
Gradually whisk about 1/2 cup milk mixture into yolk mixture. Gradually whisk in remaining milk mixture. Return entire mixture to saucepan. Cook over
medium heat, whisking constantly, until bubbling in center, about 2 minutes.. Remove from heat. Immediately whisk in pumpkin. Whisk in butter.
Strain filling through a fine sieve into a clean bowl. Pour into gingersnap crust, smoothing the top with an offset spatula. Refrigerate until set, at least 4
hours. When ready to serve, top with whipped cream, and garnish with nutmeg..
