Mmm my mom always made pumpkin chiffon pie. It is chilled instead of baked and it is delicious! I will add the recipe when I can get on the computer.

Sent from my iPod touch using DS Forum


Here ya go!

Pumpkin Chiffon Pie

Crust:
1/3 cup loosely packed flaked coconut
cup graham cracker crumbs
4 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp sugar

Pie filling:
cup milk
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
1 (16 oz) can solid-pack pumpkin
tsp ground cinnamon
tsp ground ginger
tsp ground nutmeg
tsp salt
4 eggs, separated
Sugar

In 3-quart saucepan, mix milk and gelatin. Let stand 1 minute. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until gelatin is completely dissolved.
Stir in pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, salt, egg yolks and cup sugar.
Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is very thick (do not boil), about 10 minutes.
Refrigerate until chilled, but not set, about 45 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare pie crust.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread coconut on baking sheet. Bake until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Check occasionally and stir, burning the coconut is our Thanksgiving tradition!
In 9-inch pie plate, with hands, mix toasted coconut, cracker crumbs, butter, and sugar.
Press mixture firmly onto bottom and sides of pie plate, just to the rim.
When pumpkin mixture is chilled, in small bowl with mixer at high speed, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually sprinkle in cup sugar, beating until sugar is completely dissolved. Whites should stand in stiff, glossy peaks.
With wire whisk, gently fold beaten whites into pumpkin mixture. Use a circular motion and slide whisk across pan bottom to bring mixture up and over the surface. Don’t stir or beat. Fold gently to ensure fluffy texture.
Spoon filling into crust, refrigerate until set, about 2 hours.
Top with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Posting so I can come back with the recipe later. Last year I had to do a dairy free one, and we liked it so much that I will be using that recipe from now on instead of my regular one!

Re: pumpkin pie!

I'm trying to find the recipe I used last year. It used maple syrup instead of sugar and fresh pumpkin instead of canned

kind of like this one

And I used spelt flour and whole wheat flour frozen crust.

We do dairy free because we have to, but the recipe tastes exactly the same as a traditional recipe. No one knew it was dairy free at our Thanksgiving and every one loved. Even if we could i don't see any reason for us to switch back.
