Q: I've been tasked with bringing pumpkin pie to Thanksgiving dinner. I'm an adventurous cook, so I'd like to keep the key elements of pumpkin pie (flavor, texture, etc), but make it a little more exciting. I'm open to all ingredients. Any suggestions?

Editor: I love adding ginger to the pumpkin pie, as in this recipe:
