This pie was TERRIFIC! It was delicious and I loved not making a crust. In a pinch, I learned that there is an emergency replacement for evaporated milk (reconstitute non-fat dry milk, but reconstitute with only 60% of the required water). I used fresh lemon zest, as I didn't have an orange. This recipe was immediately labeled a family favorite. It smelled so good coming out of the oven, we ate a piece while it was warm. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!
This is really good. I had to use regular evaporated milk because I was out of the fat free kind. I used the egg whites, a white wheat flour, and splenda instead of sugar. I did use regular brown sugar on top. This was a really pretty pie that had great flavor and texture. While it looks like it will be dense, it is light and fluffy. The only thing was, we preferred it warm instead of cold. Thanks for a good one.
Pumpkin pie/custard perfection, even without the crumb topping.
