Pink, I'll move this into the other sub-forum. Folks don't usually check the recipe forum unless they are searching for a recipe. I'm sure there are pumpkin pie recipes somewhere on this site. If you do a search, some may pop up.

Pink, if you made it crustless, it should be very easy.

You could make a "crust" by spraying the pie plate with non-stick spray and then sprinking it with wheat germ and one packet of splenda.

Otherwise, it would just be your favorite pumpkin pie recipe with splenda instead of sugar. Easy!

My pie filling has cream in it. I guess evaporated canned milk would be a good substitute.

If you do come up with a recipe that works, try posting it in the Low Carb Holiday Side Dish section in the recipe forum. We started adding holiday recipes there.

I make a pumpkin cheesecake that works really well. I wonder what I did with that recipe?

I totally LOVE the fall!!!!!! For this reason too. And that whole "hide yourself under clothes" thing! I tried on some of my work pants from last fall and they literally "fall" off me. Pun intended!

So now I am screwed. Hopefully my auctions make some $ so I can buy 3 pairs of nice pants and 3 shirts that are acceptable for work. I have 1 suit (the other is large on me but will have to do since I don't wear suits that often) but that's not everyday wear.

Anyway, fall=good food to me. Pumpkin and turkey and squash. Yum!

How abt using a nut crust? I had heard of that... not sure how that factors into the 15 nuts per day limits, but it must be better than real pastry? I found a recipe somewhere at Williams-Sonoma for pumpkin cheesecake, and it was a huge huge hit. I'd search the site.

And Jenne, I agree- I adore the fall! Lots of warm food and big snuggly sweaters. =)

Default Crustless Pumpkin Pie

I took this from the WW thread, but it looks like it has possibilities for SBD, too. With a nut crust...

1 15 oz can pumpkin
1/2 c egg beaters
1 1/2 c skim milk
1/2 t salt
3/4 c Splenda
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

Beat all till smooth. Pour into Pam-sprayed pie plate. Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 15 minutes, then at 375 for 45 minutes.

OK, so the nut crust thing started to intrigue me. I found this recipe on allrecipes.com. Replace the sugar with Splenda and it should be OP.

Pecan Nut Crust

2 1/2 cups ground pecans
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup white sugar
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

DIRECTIONS:
Stir together ground nuts, cinnamon, and sugar. Mix in melted butter.
Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9 inch, deep-dish style, pie pan. Chill the unbaked crust in the refrigerator for about 30 to 45 minutes.
Place pie crust on a cookie sheet, and position on the middle rack of a preheated 350 degree F (175 degree C) oven. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until lightly browned. WATCH it carefully, as nut crusts burn easily; they DON'T have to turn black to taste burnt! Cool completely before filling.

Scarves, Jess...how fun!

Fall for me is apples! Living in NY, we are smack in the middle of apple country. Yummm!

And I love the leaves...every year I collect more!

The nut crust sounds good! You could probably reduce the amount of nuts and add ground flax seed to it. Makes it more healthy and a bit more SBD friendly, though flax seed has a lot of calories.

I'm excited to see what you ladies come up with! My family recipe is a "Pumpkin Chiffon Pie" and it's made with marshmellows. Yup...that's not gonna happen!

Actually, we'll be in Amsterdam for Thanksgiving this year, so I don't even know if there will be any turkey, let alone pumpkin pie. I'll eat some cheese instead, maybe.

Laurie, can you share the pumpkin chiffon recipe? I know it isn't SB friendly, but SIL is looking for a good recipe.

My recipe contains cooked pumpkin, eggs, milk, flour, raw sugar, treacle, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and salt. You could do the pumpkin, eggs, skim milk, spices, flour (cheat) or wheatgerm then splenda and make it crustless.
