In fact, pumpkin pie is a fairly healthy dessert option, and it is even healthier if you don't use the pie shell, which is made mostly from butter. Enjoy pumpkin custard throughout the fall season, since pumpkins are in such ready supply you can easily use fresh pumpkin, or use canned puréed pumpkin if you are short on time or can't find fresh pumpkin.
