Fall is here, and with it comes the promise of crisp leaves, cool breezes, apple cider and pumpkin-flavored everything. You might call me crazy, but I’m one of those pumpkin lovers that was breaking down the doors at Starbucks to get my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the year. I love everything pumpkin, and I don’t think I could ever get sick of it. After my first batch of pumpkin pie (I’ve already made 3 this fall!), I decided to rethink my traditional pumpkin pie recipe and make it a little bit “skinnier” for those of us who just can’t pass up this fall favorite. The result was an equally delicious treat with half the calories.
