How Many Calories and WW Points in these Individual Crustless Pumpkin Cups?
According to my calculations, each creamy pumpkin pie cup has about 135 calories.
½ cup light cream cheese in a tub
1 can (15 ounces) pure pumpkin puree
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 large eggs
6 tablespoons Truvia Baking Blend
2 tablespoons Truvia Brown Sugar Blend
1-½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 can (12 ounces) low-fat evaporated milk
How to Make Pumpkin Pie Custard Cups, Step-by-Step
Step 1: Gather and prepare all ingredients.
Step 2: Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Add 8 6-ounce custard cups, or ramekins, to a high-side baking dish. If necessary, divide ramekins between two baking dishes (which is what I did).
Step 3: With an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese in a medium mixing bowl on medium speed until smooth and creamy.
Step 4: Add the pumpkin, cornstarch and eggs and mix well.
Step 5: Beat in the sweetener, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and vanilla just until incorporated.
Step 6: Pour in the evaporated milk and continue beating until smooth and thoroughly combined.
Step 7: Divide the mixture evenly among the 8 ramekins, about ½ cup in each one. Pour hot water into the baking dish, being careful not spill any into the ramekins, until it reaches halfway up the sides of ramekins. (Alternatively, you can place baking dish in the oven and then carefully add the water.)
Step 8: Bake until a knife inserted in center of ramekin comes out clean, about 35-40 minutes.
Step 9: Remove from oven and carefully remove ramekins from baking dish and cool on wire rack to room temperature. Refrigerate custard cups at least 8 hours or overnight.
Step 10: Before serving, top each cup with a dollop of light whipped topping and a sprinkle of cinnamon, or pumpkin pie spice, if desired.
Step 11: Store any remaining custard cups in the refrigerator.
Light whipped cream cheese gives this pumpkin dessert its delightfully creamy texture and cooking them in a water bath (or bain-marie) provides the environment for them to cook evenly and keeps the custard from splitting.
Can be served plain or with a dollop of light whipped topping and sprinkle of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice.
What is pumpkin pie spice?
There are many different blends of pumpkin pie spice, but they generally include cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and maybe allspice—in a mixture including any, or all of these spices. The one I am currently using includes cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice.
Ways to Use Leftovers
Be sure to store any leftover pumpkin pie cups in the refrigerator. Leftovers can be layered in a small bowl with granola, and topped with a dollop of plain nonfat Greek yogurt, for a simple pumpkin pie breakfast parfait.
