Larry's Crustless Pumpkin Pie
1 15 oz. can of Pure Pumpkin
2 8 oz. containers of FF plain yogurt
2 egg whites
1 large box of Jello FF pudding(vanilla or Butterscotch)
2 Tbsp Pumpkin Pie Spice(or cinnamon)
3/4 cup splenda

Mix all ingredients and put in a 9" pie plate (sprayed with Pam and lightly floured). Bake in preheated oven at 450°for fifteen minutes, and then 350° for 45 minutes.

Totally core with the exception of the little bit of flour on the pie plate. Cut into 8 pieces and top with Coolwhip lite - if you like (up to 6 Tbsp for only 1 additional point). Pie is 1 point if you're on FLEX plan.

This is my recipe. I took hints from other recipes I've found for pumpkin pie, but after several experiments, this is my personal recipe. This recipe was created by Larry Dommer.
