Baked Pumpkin Pudding Pie

Baked Pumpkin Pudding Pie

My mom used to make THE most amazing Pumpkin Chiffon Pie, the finest in all the land…

She used to tell us that it was the same pumpkin pie that Mamie Eisenhower served in the White House. (Does anyone else out there have this same Thanksgiving pie story?) 

I recently confirmed that a recipe for Pumpkin Chiffon Pie “credited to Mrs. Dwight D. Eisenhower, the White House,” did indeed appear in a cookbook “without much fanfare nearly 60 years ago.” The Associated Press food editor at that time said “tasters finished last mouthfuls with blissful satisfaction, and declared it the best of its kind.”

dsc01746Yes. That good.

That’s why I’m so excited about this vegan makeover, magically accomplished without whole eggs, heavy whipping cream, or a butter-laden pie crust.

Appearing here today for your holiday pleasure is this delicately-flavored, delightfully addictive crustless creation, offering all the goodness of classic pumpkin pie – with a light, healthy glow.

Happy Thanksgiving!

    • Hey Kristi! I find this is actually not a super sweet pie, and for a holiday celebration with folks of all eating persuasions, it’s kind of a nice compromise. However you might want to try using a different sweetener instead (like dates) if you’re concerned. Let me know how it works!
