Recipe by Simply Chris
Nice change from plain old pumpkin pie. This recipe makes two pies, so you can freeze one for later on. Another recipe from the Low Fat Living cookbook. If you want to make it even healthier, use whole wheat pie shells.
- 1⁄4 teaspoon grated orange rind
- 1⁄2 cup orange juice
- 12 ounces fresh cranberries
- 1 3⁄4 cups sugar substitute, divided (I use Splenda)
- 1 tablespoon arrowroot or 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon water
- 15 ounces unsweetened pumpkin
- 12 ounces evaporated skim milk
- 1⁄2 cup fat free egg substitute

- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cloves
