I developed this because we needed a delicious, low cholesterol pumpkin pie. My family now prefers this fluffy version to the custard type.
- 2 (6 ounce) prepared graham cracker crusts
- 1 (12 ounce) can fat-free evaporated milk
- 1 (15 ounce) can canned pumpkin (not pie filling)
- 1 (1/4 ounce) envelope unflavored gelatin
- 4 egg whites (Use Pasteurized raw or reconstituted powdered. Do not use a prepared liquid egg white product)
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup powdered sugar
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ginger
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons margarine (low cholesterol such as Canoleo)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
