This gorgeous-looking pie is our take on this Thanksgiving classic and features an easy, light graham cracker crust. The filling's custardy and rich, with just a hint of spice. To make the crust, simply process the graham crackers and light brown sugar in a food processor, then add some melted butter and agitate with your fingers to get the right consistency. The filling ingredients are all whipped together with an electric mixer in one bowl until smooth. All that's left to do is let it bake in the oven until it's set, and the best part is you can serve it warm or at room temperature, so it can sit on the counter until it's ready to serve.

Ingredients

graham cracker(s)

3 oz

packed light brown sugar

1 Tbsp

regular butter

2 Tbsp, melted

egg white(s)

2 large

egg(s)

1 large

dark brown sugar

½ cup(s)

table salt

¼ tsp

pumpkin pie spice

2 tsp, or less to taste

canned pumpkin

1 cup(s)

fat free evaporated milk

½ cup(s)

fresh whipped cream

4 Tbsp

Instructions

  1. Position rack in middle of oven. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. Place graham crackers and light brown sugar in a food processor; process into crumbs (or smash into crumbs in a sealed plastic food bag with a rolling pin). Spoon crumbs into a small bowl; add melted butter and combine with fingers into a coarse meal. Distribute crumbs evenly on bottom and up sides of an ungreased 9-inch pie plate. Chill for 30 minutes before baking. Bake until crust starts to turn golden, about 8-10 minutes; remove from oven and let cool.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, using an electric mixer, whip egg whites until frothy; fold in egg, dark brown sugar, salt, pumpkin pie spice, canned pumpkin, and evaporated milk. Beat pumpkin custard until smooth; pour into cooled pie shell. Bake until a knife inserted in center comes out clean, about 45-55 minutes. Slice into 8 pieces and serve warm or at room temperature, garnished with whipped cream.
  4. Serving size: 1 slice with 1/2 Tbsp whipped cream
