Crustless Pumpkin Pie In A Dish
It's fall which to me is an excuse to make everything pumpkin. I personally LOVE pumpkin. I make pumpkin pie smoothies, pumpkin pie, pumpkin pudding, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cheesecake, and even pumpkin soup. If it's something that you can make with pumpkin that will taste good I've probably either had it or made it at some point. I have many friends who don't like pumpkin, but to me pumpkin is essential for fall and holiday cooking!!!
Now that our family eats primarily paleo/primal normal pie crust is out. We do on occasion make a grannies pie crust with nuts or using cassava flour, but for everyday treats its easier skipping the crust. So for the past several years when fall rolls along I have made essentially pumpkin pie without the crust! The filling the the best part anyway isn't it? I call this a treat, but really is is packed full of nutrition. Pumpkin is full of vitamins, antioxidants , and a good source of fiber! I prefer to bake this in 8x8 or 9x11 baking dish versus a pie dish. Then, when it cools I just slice into square pieces.
Happy cooking guys!

** It is important to note that filling may still look a little jiggly but should not be runny. If it is runny cook for a little longer. The filling will become solid after it is cooled**
