When our Grandmothers and mothers made this sensationally easy pie, they used readily available cream.

But we're fortunate to have these days, the low fat equivalent for dairy products. It gives the same texture without the worry of cholesterol and calories.

The wonderful thing about this super easy low fat pie, is there is no additional butter just natural ingredients of pumpkin, maple syrup, brown sugar and eggs.

Look out for store bought rolled out pastry made with vegetable oil rather than butter. That will make for a healthier low fat alternative.
