Serves: 8


  • 1⁄3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1⁄3 cup brown sugar
  • 1⁄8 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1⁄2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1⁄4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1 1⁄2 cups canned solid-packed pumpkin
  • 1 1⁄2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1⁄2 cups evaporated skim milk
  • 1 tsp. grated orange zest
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 pre-baked pie shell (9 inches)


  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • In a large bowl, stir together granulated sugar, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Beat in the pumpkin, vanilla, evaporated milk, orange zest, and egg whites until smooth.
  • Pour into prepared crust. Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 325°F and continue to bake until a knife inserted in the filling comes out clean, about 40 minutes. If the edges of the crust start to get too brown, cover the edges with foil.
  • Cool on wire rack for 1 hour, then cover and chill in refrigerator for 4 hours before serving.
