I'm not sure about the rest of you, but I LOVE pumpkin pie, as a matter of fact, I made two of them today.

I made a low fat version though and it tastes JUST as good. My fiance couldn't even tell they were low in fat! I'm not sure how many of you do this...but here is the recipe.

4 - eggs - (used egg beaters) = 0 Fat Grams and 120 calories

1 - 29 oz. Can of "Libby's Pumpkin Pie Mix" = 1 Fat Gram and 1123 calories

1 1/2 - cup sugar (You can use equal, I didn't) = 0 Fat grams but a WHOPPING 1161 calories

1 teaspoon of salt

2 teaspoon of cinnamon

1 teaspoon of ginger

1/2 teaspoon of cloves

2 can evaporated milk (I used the fat free kind) = 0 fat grams and 587 calories

Pie Shells, already prepared frozed from store = 41 Fat Grams and 649 calories[b]

Beat eggs lightly in large bowl. (You won't have to do this if you have egg beaters.) Then add the ingredients in the order given. Pour into pie shells. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 and bake for an additional 40 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean.

[b]Total Fat and Calories for ENTIRE pie = 44 Fat Grams and 3650 calories

Total Fat and Calories in each slice (If pie is cut into 8 slices) = 5.5 grams of fat and 456 calories

(If you want to cut down on the calories in the low fat version, use a sugar substitute like Equal or Splenda)


Total Fat and Calores for the whole pie, & IF pie was made with regular ingredients = 82 Fat Grams and 3570

Total Fat and Calories in each slice (If pie is cut into 8 slices) = 10.25 Fat Grams and 446 calories.

Just so you know, you can use graham cracker crust that is very low in fat, like 8 grams for the whole pie... My friend makes it that way, the graham is very good. Or, you can make the crust at home and cut out the fat yourself. But.... it never hurts to have a treat here and there, just don't go overboard. Thank you for the recipe!!! I will try it out this weekend.

It is naturally low in fat, so you can serve yourself a slightly bigger sliver of the pie!!! I made one this weekend, it was dreamy. I have a love hate relationship w/ the holidays.... LOL. I will tell you what though, I had a nice piece of pie, and a nice long walk this saturday evening, so I don't fret a thing...

the bisquick goes right in the pie filling, and there is no crust?
