Recipe Ingredients for Healthy Mini Pumpkin Pies

15 oz pumpkin
12 oz evaporated milk, nonfat
1/2 cup egg white
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
4 cups flour, graham
6 oz fat free yogurt, chocolate flavored
2 tbsp. sugar
2/3 cup ice water

Recipe Directions for Healthy Mini Pumpkin Pies

  1. for the crust:

  2. Mix together the flour, yogurt, sugar and ice water. Add ice water tablespoon by tablespoon, until you can gather the dough into a coherent ball using a spatula and your hands. Wrap in plastic; flatten into a disk; refrigerate for several hours, or overnight.

  3. for the filling:

  4. Combine the sugars, cinnamon and ginger in a mixing bowl. Beat in the eggs and stir in the pumpkin; add the evaporated milk and mix well. Refrigerate if you aren't using it right away.

  5. prepping the pies:

  6. You'll need a mini-muffin pan and mini-muffin liners. Take your chilled dough and break off a piece about the size of a walnut. Form it into a ball. Press it into a lined tin using your thumb, then press the dough up the edges of the liner until you've formed a nice, not-too-thick crust. Continue doing this until you've filled your muffin pan, then toss the pan into the freezer. After about twenty minutes, the crusts should be good and firm. Remove the crusts from the muffin pan and place them on a baking sheet that will fit in your freezer. Pour in the pumpkin mixture to fill each crust, and return the pies to your freezer to chill until firm. If you have room in your freezer, you can make and freeze more crusts; otherwise throw any remaining dough and pie filling in the refrigerator. When the prepared pies are frozen solid (this takes several hours), transfer them to a large plastic container, and arrange in single layers separated by waxed paper. Freeze until ready to use.

  7. baking the pies:

  8. Just before party time, preheat your oven to 350F. Bake the pies for 30 min, until the filling is puffed-up and set. Place a sliver of pecan in the center of each, then bake for another 5 minutes. Let cool slightly, and serve.
