Recipe by MTpockets
This is a nice, Lighter alternative to pumpkin pie. It also has a really nice presentation. Just be sure to use canned pumpkin, not pumpkin pie mix. I have not doubled the recipe so I'm not sure how this would turn out, but I'd be interested to know how it does if someone did! Enjoy
