tried this recipe for thanksgiving dinner and was really disappointed. tasted fine. However, as I wanted to make two pies I doubled the ingredients and got two crusts ready to fill. found that the quantity was insufficient and the baking time was not long enough. The resulting pies were pathetic to look at!! As time was short, sent hubby to store to buy a box of pie crusts ( I had more pumpkin and evaporated milk at home) and made another double recipe, put it in ONE pie plate and baked it for twice as long as recipe stated. Looked normal and tasted really good but wasn't happy about doing it twice and then only having one pie!!!

This was one of the first dessert recipes I baked when my husband was diagnosed with diabetes. It's pretty good! I did use a little more sweetener though, I just kept tasting the batter till it seemed right. I think I also used Swerve (granulated erythritol) and a bit of stevia instead of splenda, it worked just fine!

I use Splenda for backing. Using packets of "sweetener" as a measurement of ingredients isn't very clear. What kind of sweetener is it? Splenda (for baking) is equal amounts to sugar. Other sweeteners are not.

Making a lower fat crust or omitting the crust might help. For the evaporated milk I use 1 cup of evaporated milk has 16 g fat, the egg has 5 g, and the pumpkin I use would add 1 more g of fat. So without a crust it would be about 22 g of fat for the filling, or just under 3 g per 1/8 of the filling.

Sounds yummy but I need to have the fat content just a bit lower, any suggestions on how to do that ?

My guess is that when the author of this recipe was referring to granulated artificial sweetener, she was referring to Splenda or generic Splenda, since it is considered the best one to use in baking and Splenda says it is made for diabetics.

to answer your question…granulated sweetner is either the stuff in the packets or like the big bag of powdery stuff (can't remember the brand name offhand)/ not in liquid or tablet form-like the way saccharin comes. :)

For those who just have to have some crust, Try ground or finely chopped toasted walnuts, almonds, or pecans and sprinkle them on the top before baking. Yummy!

I will use ramekins instead of crust. Contents are the important part anyway. Fill ramekins 3/4 full. Place in baking dish. Put water in baking dish almost to level of content in ramekins. Bake, checking after 30 minutes if set. when done, cool and serve with sugar free cool whip. I also like to sprinkle nutmeg lightly on top before baking. Scrumptious!

I would make this without the crust. that would not only cuts your carbs but also the calories by a lot & it's just as tasty.
