Pump It Up, Again!
In honor of Thanksgiving (it's the day after tomorrow!), we decided to serve up a second helping of one of our most popular recipes EVER -- our Too-Good-To-Deny Pumpkin Pie! This pie will fool EVERYONE into thinking that they're eating a fat-filled, high-calorie dessert. Make it and see...

Ingredients:

For Crust
2 cups Fiber One bran cereal (original)
1/4 cup light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown)
3 tbsp. Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated)
1 tsp. cinnamon

For Filling
One 15-oz. can pure pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling!)
One 12-oz. can evaporated fat-free milk
1/2 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
3/4 cup Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated)
1/4 cup sugar-free pancake syrup
1 tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. salt
Optional Topping: Fat Free Reddi-wip or Cool Whip Free

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine butter with 2 tbsp. water. Microwave until just melted, and set aside. In a blender or food processor, grind Fiber One to a breadcrumb-like consistency.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine butter mixture and crumbs with remaining ingredients for crust. Stir until mixed well.

Spray an oven-safe 9-inch pie dish lightly with nonstick spray. Evenly distribute crust mixture, using your hands or a flat utensil to firmly press and form the crust. Press it into the edges and up along the sides of the dish. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients for the filling. Mix well. Pour mixture into pie crust. The filling may be taller than the crust -- trust us, this is okay!

Bake pie in the oven for 45 minutes. Allow pie to cool slightly. Refrigerate for several hours (overnight is best). Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

Cut into 8 slices and, if you like, top with Reddi-wip or Cool Whip before serving!

Plump-kin Pie
Pumpkin pie is one of the best parts of the season. It's right up there with holiday bonuses and vacation days. But when it comes to those extra pounds people tend to pack on this time of year, this custard in a crust certainly plays its part. And while the stats below represent your average slice of pumpkin pie, there are some out there that are a lot worse in the calorie and fat departments. Order a piece of pumpkin pie at Bob Evans Restaurant, and you're looking at 575 calories and 30g fat. Indulge in a slice of Aunt Irma's homemade pie with the thick, buttery crust and extra-sweet filling, and who knows HOW MANY fatty calories you'll wind up ingesting!?! Why risk it? Just whip up HG's Too-Good-To-Deny Pumpkin Pie!
