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 Pie Pudding

I've done a Pumpkin Pie Pudding before, but it was done in a crockpot.  This one is easy....just a lot of 'stirring constantly'.

Makes 4 Servings
1 Serving = 2 PointsPlus®

6 TBSP Splenda granulated
2 TBSP cornstarch
1 ¾ cups fat-free milk
¼ cup fat-free egg substitute
1 cup pumpkin puree (NOT pie filling)
1 tsp vanilla
½ tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg

Combine the Splenda and cornstarch in a medium saucepan over medium heat.

In a small bowl, combine the milk and egg substitute. Gradually add this to the Splenda mixture, stirring constantly, bringing to a boil. Cook for 1 minute after it boils, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

In another small bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients. Slowly add this to the milk mixture in the pan, whisking constantly. Place pan over low heat and cook for 3 minutes until thoroughly heated, stirring constantly. DO NOT BOIL!!!

Divide pudding evenly into 4 dessert dishes and cover surface with plastic wrap. Chill.

MY SPIN: I chilled for a couple of hours and it was good. BUT.....it was better the next day. This can be served 'as is' or 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. ***

Loving life!
