A Thanksgiving dessert table is never complete without the pumpkin pie. To lighten this up, I use less sugar and a thinner crust, but you can't tell!

Ingredients

  • 15 oz canned pumpkin (or homemade pumpkin puree*)
  • 2 tbsp whipped butter (softened)
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar (unpacked)
  • 1/2 cup fat free milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 frozen pie crust sheet (Pillsbury (thawed to room temperature)*)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Lightly dust a large cutting board or flat surface with flour. Roll out a room temperature pie crust sheet, so that it becomes thin enough to cut off about 30%, so that your final crust is 5 oz.
  • Place into a 9-inch pie dish, cutting off excess dough.
  • Place pumpkin puree in a large bowl. Add butter, and mix well.
  • Using an electric mixer, mix in brown sugar, milk, eggs, egg whites, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Beat on medium speed until mixture is smooth.
  • Pour filling into unbaked pie crust. Bake about 70 to 75 minutes, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Cut into 10 slices and serve with whipped coconut cream or whipped cream if desired.

Notes

*calculated with 5 oz crust.
*canned pumpkin is thicker than homemade, if you make pumpkin puree from scratch and doesn't seem thick, you could drain it in a colander with paper towels a few hours to soak any excess moisture.
