A super sweet and super easy and seemingly lighter version of pumpkin pie. It tastes mousse like and looks fluffy. Top it with some pecan streusel if you like.

38 large marshmallows
1 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon salt
12-ounces pareve whipping cream, whipped to soft peaks
Cinnamon, garnish or Pecan Streusel topping

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake the pie crust for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden. Cool.

In the top of a double boiler over low heat, combine the marshmallows and the pumpkin puree. , Stir constantly, with a heatproof spatula, until the marshmallows are melted. Take the pan off the heat and stir in the pumpkin pie spice and salt.

When the mixture is completely cool, stir in half of the pareve whipped topping. Pour the filling into the prepared pie crust. Top with the remaining whipped topping and garnish with cinnamon or pecan streusel.

  1. I made this Pumkin Pie Mousse for Shabbat after Thanksgiving and everyone loved it, even those that don’t normally like pumpkin pie!!!

  2. I would love to make this instead of pumpkin pie this year. How far in advance can I make it? Would it be O.K. If I made it on Wednesday and served itbon Thursday?
