Crustless Pumpkin Pie

Recommended Posts

OK I made this today, is this pie a firm piece or is it suppose to be mushy like mine was???:ugh:

 

I find, that for me, it comes out more like a pumpkin pudding than a true slice of pie. Either it's the way I'm baking it, or that I'm trying to heft out 1/4 of the pie at one time. :lol: :embarrass

 

Either way I find it delicious!! I have to buy more eggbeaters so I can try it with the oats- regular or quick oats? I cannot remember.

Made this last night... it was so easy....and it's sooooo good!

The ONLY thing I do not like about it is the weird aftertaste after every bite.....it's not annoying enough to make me not want to eat it....it's really good!! Just that ONE thing....but my kids and hubby love it! Thanks for the recipe!

I'm new to the site and have already tried many wonderful recipes---thanks to ALL OF YOU! I do have one (probably silly) question about the pie. If I make it with the oats, do I cook them first, or just dump 'em in dry? I'm waiting patiently for my DV Spice Blend Syrup to arrive so I can make this yummy sounding life saver!!!! Also, when making the cottage cheese topping, how much do you make for the whole pie? And do you actually spread it on the pie or serve with each slice? questions, questions, questions!

You want to use uncooked or dry oats. I'm not sure about the cottage cheese topping though. Sounds like something that came from the CORE board :headover:

It is one cup of dry oats for the pie.

I usually make the cottage cheese for one serving. I blend 1/2 cup of low fat cottage cheese with about 2 tbs of DV then chill. It's a lot of topping, but I like it.

I'm trying this recipe out as I type this; it's in the oven!

 

It smells and looks delicious, so I can't wait to taste it for myself. :)

 

 

Update:

I just tried it, and it's great! I'll definitely be making this again in the future. :p

From Mardee (WhereForArtThou) on the Core recipe forum:

 

Crustless Pumpkin Pie with Cream of Wheat

 

I love this recipe so much I keep experimenting with it, and this time I found a wonderful variation. Instead of adding oats to the mixture, I added Cream of Wheat (not as much - only a half cup). It was delicious! The cream of wheat actually changed the consistency and made it denser. It was more like "real" pumpkin pie - it even had the same pumpkin pie cracks on the top as a real pie!

 

Here's the recipe I used:

 

1 15-oz can pumpkin (not the pumpkin pie mix)

1 cup FF milk (I use soy milk - others use FF evaporated milk)

1/2 cup FF plain or vanilla yogurt

1/2 egg substitute (or 2 egg whites and 1 whole egg)

1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 cup DaVinci Simple Syrup

1 T. pumpkin pie spices (or combination or cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and cloves)

1/2 cup Cream of Wheat (uncooked)

 

Mix the wet ingredients together with wire whisk, then add in dry. Pour into 8" square pan (or pie pan) sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 60 minutes in 350 degree oven. Tastes great warm, but is extra delicious cold - and totally CORE!

 

for 1/4 of the pie- 2.98 points (3 points) I don't have the nutritional info for the Davinci syrup, but I think it would still work out to be 3 points.

Hi,

This sounds good........and easy too!

I found that the new "silicone" baking sheets and pie pans...(HSN has the cheapest ones)...but can be found at "Target" and other stores too......need no fat or non-fat spray EVER...........and everything literally FALLS out. There are also little bundt cake size and other shapes...........sounds like they would work great for this recipe.

These silicone pans and baking aids can be safely used in ovens and freezers and folded to be put away....without cracking or breaking....

Just thought I'd share this with you.

This is so easy and wonderful. I had 1/4 of the recipe with a little Cool Whip Free for 2 points. It was super filling!! Yummy. I don't like pie crust to begin with and this tastes exactly like pumpkin pie filling.

Oh Yum! I'm saving this one! I love pumpkin pie and don't usually eat the crust anyway.

:exercise2 just had my first piece of the pumpkin pie, and wow is it good!

 

The only thing is, it is a little sweet for me, so think next time I will use on ly 1/2 cup Splenda, and use more of the pumpkin pie spice.

 

Thanks for the recipe. Judy in Nevada

Yes, as long as you use canned "pumpkin" and not the canned pumpkin pie (I think it has sugar in it).

:headover: I tried it with the oatmeal first and was being thrifty with the vanilla DV syrup. Tried it hot and it was a disappointment...but the next day I started to throw it away and broke off a bite before it went to the trash and fell in love! Today, I left out the oatmeal and used a generous 1/4 cup vanilla syrup and 1/4 cup caramel and 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice and WOWZERS!!!! I am in love! Hot pumpkin pie on top of 2 gingerbread graham crackers (3 more points) then cool whip free (1 point) and I feel like I have been to Thanksgiving dinner! YUMMMMM! Best 5 points I ever ate!

So I finally tried this... It was good, but it definitely needed vanilla (and chai DV never hurts). This will be fun to experiment with!

Hi guys,

 

I have been making an "altered" version of this for the last 8 months, and I have lost my recipe. There is a version of this that you microwave for 12-15 minutes and its done! No oven involved, and it has lower Evaporated milk, but I can't remember the exact alterations to it. I learned about it at a meeting, but everyone who used to make it at that meeting, no longer attends. :( Do any of you know the recipe for the microwave version? All I know is, its not the same as the baking version...I tried and it did not work at all. Oh, the other thing I know is that it was 1 point per QUARTER of the pie pan. :) I just can't find my recipe!

 

Thanks!

just tried the version with cream of wheat in it. Made it with French Vanilla DV syrup.

 

While good - it really really really needed splenda added. Was it supposed to have it added in?

 

I'm trying the original version now - hoping that tastes better!

I used:

Acme Brand Pumpkin = 3 points for 16 oz.

1/4 Cup Egg Beaters Whites = 1 point

1 and 1/2 Cups 1% Milk = 3 points

Splenda, nutmeg, and cinnamon (I didn't have pumpkin pie spice) = 0 Pt.

By the way, I like my pie a bit sweeter, and used 1 cup of splenda. Just right!

 

Total= 7 Points or 1.16 per slice. I don't see myself as having more than 1 slice at a time, so I'm counting it as 1 point per slice.

 

I thought pumpkin was 0 points?

 

I made one last night -

15 oz pumpkin

1 c. FF evap milk

1/2 c. egg beaters

1/4 c. DV SF Chai Tea concentrate

2 Tb each, DV SF vanilla & caramel

3 TB Cream of Wheat (I was afraid to use the full 1/4 cup, but will next time)

1 packet splenda (I wanted it to be a tad sweeter)

sprinkle of cinnamon (Thought it needed more spice)

 

I think this is 2 pts for 1/4 of the pie??

It's deeelish - thanks for the DV syrup flavor combo tip, Joanne!
