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 Delight

Fall (or Autumn) is just around the corner and that means pumpkin season for some folks. It's always pumpkin season for me! I love pumpkin!!! This recipe is so rich tasting and creamy and delicious! It's so easy to make and no baking. This is a tad high in P+ value, but worth every one of them.

Makes 10 Servings
1 Serving = 6 PointsPlus®

1 package (8 oz) Neufchatel cream cheese, softened
1 (15 oz) can of pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
3 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 package (1 oz) sugar-free fat-free cheesecake-flavored instant pudding mix
1 (14 oz) can fat-free sweetened condensed milk
1 (12 oz) container fat-free whipped topping (plus extra for topping – optional)

In the bowl of stand mixer using the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese until it's light and creamy.

Add the pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and pudding mix; beat until completely combined.

Add the fat-free sweetened condensed milk and mix until well combined.

Change the mixer attachment to the wire whisk and fold in the fat-free whipped topping on low speed.

Spoon or pour the mixture into individual serving dishes and refrigerate for at least an hour.

MY SPIN: If you don't have a stand mixer, you can use a hand mixer and when it comes to the whipped topping, fold it in using a spatula. The dishes I have put this delicious bit of pumpkin in are, with the exception of the little one in the front, actually 2 servings each but I didn't think I had smaller dishes.....and then realized I have all sizes and shapes of ramekins I could have used.....my DUH moment!

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!
