This recipe was tested with Land O'Lakes light stick butter.
When all was said and done, this recipe makeover was a giant success. The original, a marvel on its own, was transformed into a richer, better-for-you pie with even more fall spices. This winner is perfect for the holidays. Enjoy! - Healthy Cooking Test Kitchen
Our Test Kitchen helped Ashley keep the full-fat ice cream in her tasty dessert, while lightening it up at the same time. Cool vanilla ice cream is the perfect match for the chocolate wafer crust and chocolate-caramel topping. You won't believe this is light! Ashley Neumann - Metamora, MI
This tried and true recipe is absolutely delicious. Nearly 15 years ago, Joanie wrote, “With its creamy frosting and light almond flavor, no one can stop at just one piece!” That certainly is still accurate today. Another reader, Kaye Buckley, from Springfield, Massachusetts loves this recipe and was wondering if we could do a makeover on it. Without being able to see a noticeable difference in flavor, our team cut over 50% of the fat, and more than a third of the calories. Enjoy!
