Diabetic Recipe: Pumpkin-Maple Pie

Makes 8 servings (8 slices)

Ingredients  

  • Lower-Fat Oil Pastry (see below)
  • 15 oz. can pumpkin
  • ⅓ cup maple-flavored syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 packets heat-stable sugar substitute
  • 1½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • ¾ cup refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed
  • 1 cup evaporated fat-free milk
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla
  • Frozen light whipped dessert topping, thawed (optional)
  • Ground cinnamon (optional)

Lower-Fat Oil Pastry

  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup fat-free milk
  • 3 Tablespoons cooking oil

In a medium bowl stir together flour & salt. Combine milk
and oil; add all at once to flour mixture. Stir with a fork until
dough forms. If necessary, add 1-2 teaspoons additional
milk. Shape the dough into a ball.

Instructions

1. Prepare Lower-Fat Oil Pastry. On a lightly floured surface flatten pastry. Roll into a 12-inch circle. Wrap pastry circle around the rolling pin; unroll into a 9-inch pie plate. Ease pastry into pan, being careful not to stretch pastry. Trim to ½ inch beyond edge of pie plate. Fold under extra pastry. Crimp the edge as desired. Do not prick pastry.

2. For the filling, in a medium bowl combine the pumpkin, maple-flavored syrup, flour, sugar substitute, and pumpkin pie spice; add egg product. Beat lightly with a rotary beater or fork until just combined. Gradually stir in evaporated milk and vanilla; mix well.

3. Place pastry-lined pie plate on oven rack. Carefully pour filling into pastry shell. To prevent overbrowning, cover edge of pie with foil. Bake in a 375°F oven for 25 minutes. Remove the foil. Bake 20 to 25 minutes more or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Cover
and refrigerate within 2 hours. If desired, top with dessert topping and sprinkle with ground cinnamon.
