A perfect way to enjoy portion controlled pumpkin pie during the holidays. (People love these more than regular pumpkin pie thanks to the gingersnap crust!)
Ingredients
  • 1 cup Kroger ginger snap cookies (about 15)
  • 15 oz can Trader Joe's organic pumpkin puree
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice (to taste)
  • 4 egg whites
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 12 oz can fat free evaporated milk
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Use blender to break ginger snaps down into powder and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, add all remaining ingredients and blend well making sure there is no hint of egg white or you'll have scrambled egg pumpkin pie! (Use a mixer in lieu of by hand)
  4. Generously spray muffin pans with butter cooking spray (or use butter if preferred but nutritional info will change)
  5. Put 1½ to 2 tsp of ginger snap powder in each muffin tin and press into the bottom and sides about halfway up so no pan shows through.
  6. With an average sized ice scoop, fill the tins almost to the top. (You might have 2 scoops left when it's all filled)
  7. Bake for 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. (Don't freak out if they appear to puff over the tops halfway through, they'll sink back in but use a cookie sheet under the pan if desired)
  8. Allow to cool for about 60 minutes then get a thin knife or toothpick and loosen the edges of the pies.
  9. Put a piece of parchment or wax paper over the top of the muffin tin.
  10. Put a large cutting board on top of the muffin tin and flip it over.
  11. Hopefully they'll all drop out with ease and remove the ones that do to a serving platter.
  12. If they don't, work out your aggressions and give it a good tap or two on the counter and loosen with knife if needed.

    Hello: I’m getting things ready to make these, but I was wondering what the 24 is in the nutritional information. I’m trying to figure out how many Weight Watcher points plus the cups will be. Thank you from Oklahoma

      Those are carbs. I’m not sure why that’s not showing up in the program. I’ll have to contact the programmer on that one. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!
