Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Pumpkin Custard

Oh my! I wish I could take credit for this, but that would be dishonest. So......here's the scoop on this one. I got it via Snack Girl who got it from Slender Kitchen.  The only 'tweaking' I did to this recipe was replacing the 1 egg with 1/4 cup fat-free egg substitute. If you're looking for a quick, portion-control-size serving of something pumpkin, this is it!! I couldn't wait to taste it, so the fat-free whipped topping started melting a little bit. It was absolutely delicious warm and I can only imagine (because I ate it all warm) how yummy it will be cold! This is, in my opinion, a HUGE single serving. I just HAD to share this with you!

1/2 cup pumpkin (NOT pie filling)
1/4 fat-free egg substitute
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl using a whisk. Pour into a small mug or ramekin.

Microwave for 3 minutes until firm.

Serve 'as is' or topped with a dollop of fat-free whipped topping.

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!! *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***
