I dont know if splenda is very good for me, but at least it isn't sugar. I will let you know how it tastes after I try it out. Here is the recipe before my changes.

I was going to wait to eat the pie, but on a cold day when I am craving carbs, I just had to try it out. The taste and texture are both good. I would recommend it to you.

Thanks!

I use some artificial sweeteners and I am pretty sure they are not good for me but, neither is being overweight!

I think it was Andy Rooney that said a diet is something unhealthy that people do in order to become healthy!

Looks great, how did it taste?

Where did you get that amazing pie plate?

My pie plates only hold four maybe five slices of pie!

It tasted great to me because I have not been eating many sweets lately as you know. Tis cold weather just made me hungry for comfort food, and pumpkin pie is a comfort food for sure. Pumpkin is also really good for me, right?.

As for the pie plate, I am not sure where I got it. I have two. I have had them for quite a while. It is 9.5 inches (24 cm.). Made by Anchor Hocking in U.S.A.

Looks good, Chopper! I've made it that way too, with the Libby recipe. I call it pumpkin pie guts. Not a real fan of standard pie crust, I usually scrape out and eat the filling and leave the crust.

Pumpkin pudding! This dish needs a dairy component - whipped cream comes to mind.

There is evaporated milk in the "pieless".

Thanks Princess. You are right, it is a veggie!
