DIETARY CONSIDERATIONS

Kid-Friendly, Low Sodium, Vegetarian
  • Pastry dough for 1 pie crust
  • 1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup evaporated milk (skim or low-fat)
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon (slightly heaping)
  • 1/2 teaspoon each: ground nutmeg, ground ginger and cloves (slightly heaping)
  • 2 eggs

For The Streusel:

  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a 9-inch pie dish with pastry dough; turn under excess dough to fit dish and flute decoratively.
  2. Whisk together pumpkin, brown sugar, milk, spices and eggs until smooth and pour into pastry.
  3. Stir together streusel ingredients in a medium bowl with a fork and carefully sprinkle over pie.
  4. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, tenting with foil if crust browns too quickly. Let cool completely before serving.
  5. For an extra ginger kick, top pie with a ginger whipped cream. Whip heavy cream with a little powdered sugar to lightly sweeten, then stir in finely chopped crystallized ginger to taste.

  1. Walnuts may be good for the brain but sugar is not. All that sugar would be counter-productive I'm sure, since some studies also indicate Alzheimer's may be a "Type 3 Diabetes". I would make this with a flax-meal and nut flour crust, using a sweetener such as Pyure or erythritol and stevia, some blackstrap molasses added for the brown sugar part, and coconut cream (from top of canned coconut milk) instead of evaporated milk, to get a much better and healthier Alzheimer fighting recipe.
