No-Crust Pumpkin Pie

Baked in a water bath, this pie has a texture that's more like a custard than a traditional pumpkin pie. In place of canned or fresh pumpkin, I sometimes use cushaw, a type of crookneck squash.

    I certainly wouldn’t make this again. It is entirely too sweet.

    My daughter is allergic to wheat. Could you substitute cornstarch, potato starch or some other non- wheat thickener?

    I increased the spices and because my husband and I are diabetic, I substituted Splenda for the full amount of sugar and used lo-fat evap. milk. Next time I will try Splenda Blend White, but I WILL make it again!

    This was very bland. would use a whole lot more spice and maybe more sweetener if I made it again.
