Recipe Directions

Slice Pumpkin Pie and Pumpkin

Make pie crust, substituting 1 teaspoon Equal for Recipes for the sugar. Roll pastry on floured surface to circle 1-1/2 inches larger than inverted 9-inch pie pan. Ease pastry into pan; trim and flute. Pierce bottom of pastry with tines of a fork. Bake at 425 degrees until browned, about 15 mounties. Cool on wire rack.

Whisk remaining 2-1/2 teaspoons Equal for Recipes, gelatin, cornstarch, and milk over medium heat in medium saucepan until mixture boils and thickens, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir about 1/2 of the milk mixture into the egg yolks; whisk egg mixture into saucepan.

Whisk over low heat until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla, and salt. Cool to room temperature; refrigerate until mixture mounds when dropped from a spoon, about 20 minutes.

Whisk mixture gently until smooth; fold in 1 cup whipped topping and spoon into pie crust, smoothing top. Refrigerate until set, 3 to 4 hours. Garnish slices with dollops of whipped topping.
