Ingredients

1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin
1 can (14 ounces) fat-free sweetened condensed milk
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1¼ teaspoons ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon salt
1 unbaked pie crust deep dish (9 inches), refrigerated or frozen (or homemade)

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 425 F.

2. In a large bowl, combine filling ingredients, mixing well. Pour into pie crust.

3. Bake 15 minutes at 425 F.

4. Reduce oven temperature to 350 F and continue baking 35-45 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool pie before cutting.
