I lightened this recipe from the original and cut calories in half, but not the flavor. It tastes like pumpkin pie without the crust. Sometimes I add a dollop of fat free Cool-Whip on top.

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the milk and brown sugar.
  2. Cook over a medium heat about 5 minutes until bubbles form around the edges of the pan, stirring to dissolve sugar.
  3. In a small bowl beat the egg yolks and spices.
  4. Gradually whisk about 1/2 cup of the hot cream into the eggs and continue to whisk until smooth.
  5. Pour the egg mixture into the cream mixture into the pan.
  6. Cook and stir over medium heat until the mixture coats a metal spoon, 4-6 minutes.
  8. Stir in vanilla.
  9. Whisk the pumpkin into the egg mixture.
  10. Cover surface with plastic wrap to prevent a skin from forming and refrigerate until chilled, 3 hours or overnight.

  12. Note: You can use canned pumpkin pie, just eliminate the spices.
