We Don't Need No Stinkin' Crust Pumpkin Pie

Oh yeah... it is fall, and that means pumpkin goodness! And pecans... and cinnamon.... yummmmm....
So anyway, I wanted to play with some ideas to get a guilt free pumpkin pie, and the hubster tells me I have nailed it with this.

2 large eggs, beaten lightly
1 scoop unflavored protein powder
1/2 cup splenda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground ginger
pinch of salt
1 can fat free evaporated milk
1 can pumpkin puree

Preheat oven to 425, and spray a 1.5 qt casserole dish with Pam. Combine above ingredients, and pour into dish, place on center rack of oven and bake for 15 minutes. While this is baking, in food processor bowl combine 3/4 cup Carbquick, 3/4 cup splenda, 1 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg, 3/4 stick cold butter. Process until bread crumb consistency, then stir in 1 cup chopped pecans. Spread over pie mixture, reduce temp to 350, and bake for 35 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Now if you have no need to make this bari-friendly, you can leave out the protein powder, replace the splenda with sugar, the carbquick with bisquick, and use full fat milk. However, I challenge you to serve this to non-ops without telling them it's healthy, and I doubt they would ever guess!
