Food Factor: Crustless Pumpkin Pie
by Ms. Natasha Haynes, MSU Extension Service
Love pie, but can’t eat the crust? Or do you need a gluten-free option for your dessert table this holiday season?
This Crustless Pumpkin Pie fits the bill and comes together quickly. Although this recipe calls for pumpkin, I prefer sweet potato pie.
So, we substituted Mississippi-grown sweet potatoes in our recipe. They work just as well, and they also are in season. Bake three to four medium to large sweet potatoes. Cool. Remove the skins and mash.
That’s it! It’s really easy.
Crustless Pumpkin Pie
- 4 eggs
- 15 ounces canned pumpkin
- 8 ounces evaporated milk
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Nonstick cooking spray
Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a pie pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Add the eggs to a mixing bowl and beat together.
Next, add the pumpkin, evaporated milk, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla, and salt. Mix until smooth.
Pour into the pie pan and bake for 15 minutes.
Turn the oven down to 325 degrees F and bake for another 30 minutes or until the pie is set. Pie is done when a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
