Halloween Week - Pumpkin Pie Bakeoff

Half of my light pumpkin pie

Last week at my office we had a pumpkin pie bakeoff. I was super excited about it and decided to make 2 different pies, both light. I thought I would definitely place in the contest and then post the recipes here but alas, my pies turned out to be stinkers. I even had to throw out half of one of my small pieces because it was too sour and spiced all at the same time. That was the recipe that I had not tried before. The other recipe, shown here, which was more traditional was not awful, but not nearly as good as the winning pie with a traditional recipe and home made crust. I should have made the WIlliams-Sonoma pumpkin cheesecake. Oh well, there's always next year.
