Pumpkin Pie with Rum

EatingWell Comfort Foods Made Healthy: The Classic Makeover Cookbook (2009)

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (72 votes)

Dark molasses and dark rum put this pumpkin pie a cut above the rest. Nonfat evaporated milk, which stands in for heavy cream, does a fantastic job of cutting the fat in the filling. Add to that our blue ribbon butter-canola crust and you've dropped three-quarters of the fat and more than half the calories found in most similar pies. Don't use pumpkin-pie mix—buy canned pumpkin without added spices: the flavor will be superior.

The molasses and rum flavors were too intense. Only 1/4 of the pie was eaten and those that tried it, didn't finish their pieces. Most of the pie ended up in the compost.

Not enough crust

Don't know about the taste, but I can't see how one can roll this crust into 13" circle. I did my best, but the filling still drowned the edge of the crust. Hopefully it is not a complete disaster.

This pie has a wonderful,warm aroma and flavor. I made this as a test for Thanksgiving and will definitely be using it for the big day. I have to admit, doubted the crust half-way through but persevered in the end. I will also be doing a run/vanilla extract mix (or even a run/almond extract mix) because the rum flavor was a bit strong. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!

This pie is a delight! Would recommend it to anyone who wishes to make a 'different' pumpkin pie. The taste is rich with just the right measurements of spices. The rum adds a nice touch as well. Hope you enjoy!
