PUMPKIN SQUARES 2 POINTS

Recommended Posts

Pumpkin Squares (2 points)

 

For pumpkin pie fans, this is an excellent substitute. The "crust" is

more like a cookie than a pastry.

 

Dough:

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/8 tsp baking soda

1/3 cup regular sugar

2 Tbsp margarine

1 large egg

 

Filling:

1 cup pumpkin puree (canned)

2 egg whites

1 large egg

3/4 cup evaporated skim milk

1/2 cup brown sugar, packed firmly

2 Tbsp all-purpose flour

1 tsp ground ginger

 

Preheat over to 350F. Spray 8" square baking pan with vegetable

cooking spray.

 

In a large bowl, beat (high speed) together sugar and margarine

until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. At low speed, beat in baking

soda and then the 1c flour until a dough forms. Press dough into

prepared pan, allowing it to cover the sides and the bottom. Prick

the top with a fork. Bake until golden (approx 15 minutes).

 

Prepare filling in a large bowl, combining: pumpkin, egg whites,

egg, milk, b. sugar, 2T flour and ginger. Pour filling into prepared

crust (it need not be cooled). Bake until set (approx 40 minutes).

Place pan on wire rack until completely cooled.

 

WW points = 35.9 (based on values in the Supermarket

Companion) = 2 per serving (recipe makes 16 servings)

I tried these, substituting egg substitute for the egg whites (didn’t have the extra eggs). Use the egg whites – my squares tasted a little eggy. I also accidentally poured the filling into the crust without baking it first. I just cooked it for 55 minutes total & it turned out beautifully. I also added a dash of cinnamon & nutmeg to the filling. They were very tasty. :cool:
