This crustless pumpkin pie recipe is so easy and you won’t miss the crust!

Crustless Pumpkin Pie Recipe

I make a simple homemade apple pie filling, so it’s a little silly that it didn’t occur to me to make a crustless pumpkin pie. You could also call this dessert “pumpkin custard,” but I don’t think that sounds as delicious as “pie.”

Pumpkin alone is creamy and low in calories. I substituted the evaporated milk found in most pumpkin pie recipes with unsweetened almond milk and it works.

This recipe is as easy as pumpkin pie and has the benefits of being crustless. The truly great crust is basically butter or lard and flour. I never thought of a way to make a base with fewer calories. It’s much easier to just drop it.

Turns out you don’t need the crust!

I like to make this recipe in ramekins because that produces instant portion control. and They cook faster. If you don’t have fancy molds, you can use anything that’s ceramic, like coffee mugs.

These crustless pumpkin pies are ready when the center is set. You can tell when they are not finished because the center is still liquid. Keep cooking and I promise they will harden.

If you want your crust (which I totally understand), try my mini pumpkin pie recipe. I use mini puff pastry pans that you can find in the freezer section to make adorable little cakes.

They keep well and I have been known to eat one for breakfast. I like mine a little hot, so I throw it in the microwave.
