Lighter Pumpkin Pie Dessert

Lighter Pumpkin Pie Dessert

Pumpkin pie lightened up! Only a few slight changes to the usual pumpkin pie are made - but those changes have no effect on the delicious pumpkin flavor in this Lighter Pumpkin Pie Dessert!

Ingredients

1 9-inch deep-dish pie shell
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large egg whites
1 15 oz. can pure pumpkin (1-3/4 cup)
1 12-oz. can evaporated fat free milk

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Combine sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, ginger and salt in small bowl. Beat egg whites lightly in large bowl. Stir in pumpkin and sugar mixture. Gradually stir in evaporated milk.

Pour into pie shell.

Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees; bake for additional 30 to 40 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 2 hours. Serve immediately or refrigerate. (Do not freeze as this will cause filling to separate from crust.)

For two shallow pies: Substitute two 9-inch (2-cup volume) pie shells. Bake in preheated 425 degrees oven for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees; bake for additional 15 to 20 minutes or until pies test done.

Recipe Note

If using a metal or foil pan, bake on preheated heavy-duty baking sheet. Do not freeze as this will cause filling to separate from crust.
