    ratherbeswimmin''s Note:

    This pie has a lighter texture than the traditional pumpkin pie. A gingersnap crust is an excellent choice for this pie. You may also top with a dollop of whipped cream if you like.

      Our family really enjoyed this as a lighter alternative to the full-blown pumpkin pie. Recipe worked exactly as written and only took a short time to chill and firm up. We made a pumpkin soup with the remaining pumpkin puree from the can.
