Mona's Lighter Pumpkin Pie
This recipe turned out really well for me. I used liquid egg whites, but I did use regular sugar, as I didn't have any substitute on hand. I used about 1/3 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar. I made my own spice blend of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, mace, and I forgot the cloves, but it still turned out great!
Warning: when I mixed it up, I thought it was too runny. In fact it made too much mix and I had to dump some of it out so it would fit in the pie pan. I may try cutting back on the evaporated milk (maybe using 1/2 the can) next time. It baked well, though: I did the first 30 minutes uncovered, then draped a piece of foil over it. I think I ended up cooking it another 30 minutes before I took it out. It still wasn't quite set, but it set while it rested. My pie crust was a standard recipe that I use for all of my pies (I got it from The Pioneer Woman's blog, her Pam's Pie Tutorial).
