Cook and stir egg yolks, brown sugar, pumpkin, spices and milk in a sauce pan. Cook until thick. Stir in the gelatin mixture and stir until dissolved. Set aside and let it cool.
In a large bowl whip egg whites until stiff but not dry. IF you pull the beater up the egg white should look like mountain peaks holding its form. Gradually stir in 1/2 cup white sugar. Fold into the egg mixture.
Fill the deep dish pie shell and chill for several hours.
Whip the cream until soft peaks form, add sugar to taste ( 2 Tablespoons). Top with whip cream.
You need to fold in the egg whites and not stir to keep the chiffon fluffy. This makes a lot of filling so you will need a deep dish pie plate.
