  pumpkin cream cheese pie

I thought I'd make a pie in the laziest no bake way possible. Though I did go all in and make a low carb crust with almond flour. The crust came out okay, though I used salted butter which was a salty bad idea. The filling, a mix of spices, pumpkin, cream cheese and whipped cream came out with some lovely light and fluffy height. See, in the pic it sliced up well and looked good. Sadly, in an attempt to stay low sugar and carb--I didn't put near enough sweetener in it. All little things I'll remember if I ever try to do this again. Of course, even with its issues, me and the SO manage to finish it off because it wasn't inedible! Just sprinkle another packet of sweetener on each slice and voila--dessert. The crust was still too salty so couldn't do much about that. All in all, it wasn't 100% sucky and it got eaten. For a first try, I'll take it and next time, I'll just buy it. Even lazier!! Stayed tuned though, it is November and time for more pumpkin stuff!
