"When I was on a low-fat diet, I couldn't bear the thought of celebrating Thanksgiving without my favorite pumpkin pie," explains Fort Wayne, Indiana's Mary Alice Dick. "So I altered the ingredients and created this thick pudding instead. Now I can enjoy the dessert throughout the year."
This recipe comes out perfect every time and it's always a crowd pleaser! A torch works best to get the sugar caramelized while keeping the rest of the custard cool. You may want to use even more sugar to create a thicker, more even crust on top. —Jenna Fleming, Lowville, New York
This rich, silky custard has a hint of coffee flavor and it's is draped with a luscious caramel sauce. It is a divine ending to a holiday meal or as a simple coffee and dessert get-together with friends.—Mariela Petroski, Helena, Montana
