So, this picture really doesn’t need a description, does it? Other than MAKE THIS NOW!


 

Ingredients:

1 cup THM baking blend  (or another homemade alternative such as Run Amok Mama’s Quick Mix or Raye’s Place Easy Mix)

1/2 cup old fashioned oats

3 Tbsp homemade brown sugar mix (Simple! Mix 1 cup of THM sweet blend or Pyure organic stevia mix with 1 tsp of blackstrap molasses. Bingo! You have low-carb brown sugar! Or, you can follow the recipe for Gwen’s Nest brown sugar found here)

1/2 cup butter

2 cups pumpkin (A 15 or 16 ounce can is just right)

1 1/2 cups heavy cream

2 eggs

1/4 cup THM Sweet Blend or Pyure sweetener

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground ginger

1/4 tsp ground cloves

1/2 cup chopped pecans

3 Tbsp homemade brown sugar mix (as described above)

1 Tbsp butter

 

Directions:

  1. Toss the first 4 ingredients in a food processor and process until crumbly. Or, if you’d rather do it the hard way, a fork or pastry blender works, too. Press into a 9×13 pan and bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine pumpkin, cream, eggs, sweetener, and spices. Beat well and pour on top of your crust (it doesn’t matter if it’s still hot). Bake 25-30 minutes until until filling is nearly set.
  3. Mix pecans, brown sugar blend, and butter until well mixed, then sprinkle on top of pumpkin. Return to oven to complete baking (10-15 minutes). The pie filling should be set by then.
  4. Serve chilled and topped with whipped cream.
