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!!!

Amazing Nuked Pumpkin Pie

Another recipe I was kind of skeptical about a microwavable pie coming out good, but what a great surprise!!!  If you have these ingredients on hand and people 'pop' in.....POOF!!! Easy, quick dessert!!!

Makes 8 Servings
1 Serving = 2 PointsPlus™

16 oz. pumpkin puree (NOT pie filling)
12 oz. fat-free evaporated milk
2 TBSP light butter, softened
1/2 cup fat-free egg substitute
3/4 cup Splenda granulated
1/2 cup Bisquick
2 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp vanilla

Spray a 9 1/2 or 10 inch microwave-safe pie plate.

Beat all ingredients in a large bowl until smooth with a mixer.

Pour into sprayed pie plate.

Microwave on an inverted microwaveable dinner plate on high, rotating plate 1/4 turn every 5 minutes unless your microwave rotates automatically.

The pie is done when a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, between 22 and 28 minutes.

Cool on a flat heatproof surface, NOT on a cooling rack.

This can be served 'as is' or with a dollop of fat-free whipped topping.

MY SPIN: I used a 9 1/2 inch pie plate and 'nuked' mine 25 minutes.

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. ***

Loving Life!
