Smile Niki's Creamy Pumpkin Pie with Pecan Crust...with pic :)

I made this crust before, but Michael was allergic to the flaxseed meal so I didn't use it and it turned out great without it. I fiddled around with the pumpkin pie filling and it was really nice too. Anyways, here it is...ENJOY!!!

Ingredients

Pecan Pie Crust
3/4 cup almond flour
6 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 cup of chopped pecans

Pumpkin Pie Filling
15 ounce can pumpkin
2 eggs
8 oz cream cheese, softened
3 tbsp heavy cream
1/2 tbsp pumpkin spice
dash cinnamon

Pecan Crust
Mix dry ingredients in a small bowl. Add Splenda to melted butter; pour over dry ingredients. Mix well and spread in 9" pie plate. Bake at 375 about 10-12 minutes until set and lightly browned. Cool, then fill pie.

Pumpkin Pie Filling
Soften cream cheese and put in mixing bowl with all other ingredients. Mix well with blender. Spread out on top of crust. Bake in oven at 350 for 40 minutes or until firm to touch.

Niki,

Thank you so much for posting this. I made it this past weekend for my family's Thanksgiving dinner and even the non-lc'ers loved it. The crust was awesome. After I blind-baked it, I was ready to eat it without adding the filling...mmmm!

I forgot to get the cream cheese out to soften, so it didn't totally blend in...there were tiny specs of white in my pie. My sister, who knows I'm lc'ing and not afraid to experiment, said "is there cauliflower in here??" :P

My dh gave the last two pieces to my friend when he dropped my daughter off for babysitting. Boo I was looking forward to another piece, but I guess he's watching my portions for me!

I made this recipe yesterday w/o pecans and it was delicious. Very simple and quick to make. Certainly can not tell the difference between it and regular pumpkin pie. I used Sweetfreeze about 4-5 drops and it was perfect, looked pretty too. I whipped some HC to top it off, perfect with espresso.

has anyone tried making just the pie filling in custard cups? in the oven or in the microwave? I have a 1/2 can of filling and this sounds really good, but I have no idea how long I'd cook it for. THANKS!

I would believe you could cook it for the same time but watch it closely. Plus you may to place custard cups in a roasting pan place in oven then add water in the pan, fill it half way. Be careful to remove custard cups individually when done as to not burn yourself attempting to lift roasting pan with all that water. Hth, sounds like a great idea.

MeMeMe 2009, Doesn't look like Nicolerene has been around for a while. May just have to experiment with it a bit. I'll be making mine sometime on Wednesday. I wouldn't imagine that the crust would need much splenda if any. Not sure about the filling.

This pie turned out well. I used just a tablespoon of splenda in the crust and one cup in the filling. It was the perfect sweetness. It take a while to firm up though but was very good.
