  • 1/2 cup gingersnap crumbs
  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 tbsp extra-light margarine, melted
  • 1 cup canned mashed pumpkin
  • 1 cup fat-free egg substitute
  • 1 cup evaporated skim milk
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp powdered ginger
  • 1/8 tsp grated nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground allspice

In a medium bowl, mix the gingersnap crumbs and graham cracker crumbs. Add the margarine and mix well.

Coat a 9″ pie plate with no-stick spray. Add the crumb mixture and press it evenly into the pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 7 minutes.

While the crust is baking, in a large bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, eggs, milk, honey, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice. Pour into the crust.

Bake for 40 minutes, or until the center of the filling doesn’t jiggle when you gently shake the pan. Allow to cool before cutting.

Serves 8.
