No Pie, Pumpkin Pie!
Author: Susan Maria Leach, Before & After
- One 15-ounce can Libby's pumpkin purée
- ⅓ cup Truvia sugar replacer or ⅔ cup Splenda granulated
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon ground ginger
- ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
- 2 large eggs
- One 12-ounce can evaporated milk
- Splenda sweetened whipped cream
- Preheat oven to 350° F.
- Mix the pumpkin, Truvia, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves in a large bowl.
- Beat in the eggs.
- Gradually stir in evaporated milk.
- Pour into glass or ceramic baking dish. Bake until knife inserted near the center comes out clean - this time can vary greatly depending on how big a baking dish you use. Cook until done, but if you use a pie plate, 25 to 40 minutes is a guide. Cool on wire rack, then either serve at room temperature or chill. Serve with whipped cream.
