I thought this was a great autumn treat. As I am trying to keep my sodium and sugar intake to an all time low, I made a couple substitutions. Instead of sugar, I used 2 Tbsp of molasses, and a quarter cup of honey. I also added a quarter cup of whole wheat flour to the filling as well as 2 small eggs. I ended up having to bake it for 40 minutes total but it turned out great. My 4 year old asked for more pumplin pie with ice cream!
