Really 2 hours? I doubled the recipe before and it only took 40 minutes. Hmm?

This is a dessert that anyone would like, it's awesome!!

Yum

I made this for the first time last night and it was WONDERFUL. No eggy taste at all. I used an 8X8 pan and cut it into 9 squares. The whole family loved it. Great pumpkin pie substitute.

TYPO! TYPO!! My bad. It took over ONE hour to bake. Might be my oven but I reset the 20 minute timer three times plus left it in a bit longer.

Hehe, I was wondering about that Kisha. Yeah, ovens do differ.

1/4 cup vanilla sugar-free DaVinci's
15 ounce can pumpkin
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp

Pour into 6x9 greased casserole and top with chopped pecans. Bake for 40 minutes at 350, cover the last 15 minutes so pecans are toasted, but don't burn.
Was this variation ever amended somewhere? It seems like the list of ingredients was cut off.

Freeman, I think the recipe ingredients are complete other than she sprinkled chopped pecans over the top, which she didn't include in the list. She probably didn't measure them, just sprinkled some over.
Not putting them in the ingredient list is confusing. But they can probably be left out/off.

Thanks for your comments. I'm assuming the "1/2 tsp" at the bottom of the ingredients list is some spice.

Freeman, it looks like she was just breaking down and adding in the individual spices that make up the Pumpkin Pie Spice. I would just leave the 1 t. cinnamon, since it is a great addition, and add 1/2 T of pumpkin pie spice. That is what I did and it was wonderful!

The third spice in pumpkin pie spice is usually nutmeg. So I would guess 1/2 t nutmeg.

To me the 3rd spice would be ground ginger. Cinnamon, cloves, and ginger are the three spices that the Libby's pumpkin recipe calls for.

That's good to know. When I googled pumpkin pie spice, I must have gotten a different recipe.

There are TONS of pumpkin pie spices out there. Generallly you can combine whatever "hot" spices you have on hand (um not chili powder LOL)

Does it have a strong splenda/AS taste?

Has anyone used stevia? or a combo of splenda and stevia?

I have, using about 8 drops of EZ-Sweetz and 1/4 teas. NuNaturals stevia.

Oh my goodness, this was so delicious. I made it with the original recipe and put it in to a six muffin tin. Delicious hot and cold!

Made this for the 1st time and while it was good, I didn't love it.
It was missing something. I just can't put my finger on it.

You didn't forget the vanilla did you?
I think extra vanilla and or extra spice could up the pizzaz of this dish.

ETA: O and if you top it with home whipped cream (AS sweetened) I bet its not missing anything! :wink:

I didn't put any vanilla. I wanted to, but I was trying to follow a recipe as written for once in my life. LOL. I tend to get a bit crazy and start modifying, but this time I just added what I wrote down from the recipe. I don't recall vanilla, but maybe I skipped an ingredient when I was writing it down.

Or maybe i got the recipe crazy wrong somehow or got a tweaked recipe?

OR ELSE I JUST AUTOMATICALLY PUT VANILLA IN IT WITHOUT READING THE RECIPE!?!?!? lol.

Tastes are different, I made it once and ended up throwing most of it out, and I rarely ever do that.
