Find it, Make it – Adventures in New Recipes by Amanda
This is a great fall dessert that will satisfy your craving for pumpkin pie in a hurry. No crust involved!! I found this on Pioneer Woman’s Tasty Kitchen site posted by member bloggingoverthyme.

I made this to follow up the pasta dish from my previous post which you can link to here: Pasta with Roasted Vegetables and Bacon.
I made only one small adjustment to this recipe. It called for 3 servings but I separated it into 4 ramekins so everyone in my family could have one. I also made some whipped cream with heavy cream, a little white sugar, maple syrup and cinnamon to top it.
This dessert was a big hit. It was so easy. I already had every ingredient in my kitchen and it presented like I had slaved over it. My kids loved it and thought they were pretty special with their own little individual dish to dig in to. Also, since it’s made with skim milk and no crust, you don’t feel so guilty about it!
Simple Pumpkin Pie Custard
- 3 Tablespoons Pure Maple Syrup
- 1 whole Egg
- 1-½ whole Egg Whites
- 2-½ Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
- ½ cups Pureed Canned Pumpkin
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- ⅛ teaspoons Salt
- 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoons Ground Nutmeg
- ¼ teaspoons Ground Ginger
- ½ cups Skim Milk
Preheat oven to 325ºF. Pour 1 tablespoon of maple syrup into each ramekin, swirl to cover the bottom.
Whisk together egg, egg whites, and sugar. Add pumpkin, vanilla, salt and spices. Gently whisk in milk. Pour equally into ramekins.
Place ramekins into a baking dish and fill with boiling hot water until 1/4 of the side of the ramekins is covered.
Bake for 60-70 minutes. They are done when the middle of the custard is set and does not wiggle when lightly tapped. Let cool completely, cover and store in the refrigerator.
These taste delicious cold or heated slightly in the microwave!
