- 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
- 2 Tablespoons whipped butter, softened
- ¾ cup light brown sugar, unpacked
- ½ cup skim milk
- 1 large egg
- 2 large egg whites
- ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 frozen pie crust sheet, thawed to room temperature
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Lightly dust a flat surface with flour. Roll out thawed pie crust sheet so that it becomes thin enough to cut off about 30%, making the final weight of the crust only 5 ounces. Place into a 9-inch pie dish, cutting off excess dough.
- Place pumpkin puree in a large bowl. Add butter and mix well.
- Using an electric mixer, mix in brown sugar, milk, eggs, egg whites, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Beat on medium speed until mixture is smooth.
- Pour filling into unbaked pie crust. Bake in preheated oven for about 70 to 75 minutes, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
- Cut into 10 slices and serve.
You could also make your own pie crust from scratch, if desired.
