Light-Style Pumpkin Pie
recipe Oil Pastry (see recipe below)
12.3 ounce package light firm silken-style tofu (fresh bean curd)
15 ounce can pumpkin
cup sugar or sugar substitute blend* equivalent to 2/3 cup sugar
teaspoon ground cinnamon
teaspoon ground ginger
teaspoon ground cloves
Light frozen whipped dessert topping, thawed (optional)
Ground cinnamon (optional)
Chopped crystallized ginger (optional)
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare Oil Pastry. On a well-floured surface, use your hands to slightly flatten pastry dough. Roll dough from center to edge into a circle about 12 inches in diameter. To transfer pastry, wrap it around the rolling pin. Unroll pastry into a 9-inch pie plate. Ease pastry into pie plate, being careful not to stretch pastry. Trim pastry to 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie plate. Fold under extra pastry. Flute or crimp edge as desired. Do not prick.
- Place tofu in a blender. Cover and blend until very smooth, stopping to scrape down side of container as necessary. Add pumpkin, sugar, the 1 teaspoon cinnamon, the salt, ginger, and cloves. Cover and blend until well mixed. Pour pumpkin mixture into pastry-lined pie plate, spreading to an even layer.
- To prevent overbrowning, cover edge of the pie with foil. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove foil. Bake for 30 minutes more. Cool on a wire rack. Cover and refrigerate within 2 hours.
- To serve, if desired, top with whipped topping, additional ground cinnamon, and crystallized ginger.
