Now, in addition to the chocolate cream pie (from my son's school fund raiser) and the store bought pecan pie (from the grocer's freezer), I'll have something for the health conscious among us.
This pie recipe is adapted from a very old magazine, although I'm not sure which one. It uses a variety of spices that gives the pumpkin filling a fantastic flavor!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and Happy Eating!
1 lb. canned pumpkin
1/2 cup honey
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t ginger
1/4 t nutmeg
1/8 t cloves
1/2 t salt
3/4 cup coconut milk
Nut crust (recipe follows)
Spray a 9" pie plate with cooking spray. Line with with nut crust (see below).
Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl beat eggs slightly. Add pumpkin, honey, spices and salt. Beat until well blended. Slowly stir in coconut milk.
Pour into nut crust. Bake 60-70 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
1 cup pecans
2 T honey
1/4 t salt
4 oz. dates
1/2 t vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients in food processor. Spray a 9" pie plate with cooking spray. Press nut crust mixture along bottom and sides.
I grew up eating sweet potato pie on Thanksgiving, instead of pumpkin, but I love both! Which do you prefer? Thanks for visiting and have a great week!
