I've never made a pumpkin pie from scratch before, but I've always heard there's a difference between a jack-o-lantern pumpkin and pie pumpkin.  Can we use any pumpkin for the recipies?

ANSWER, according to the University of Illinois extension service;

"Pumpkins are the most popular members of the squash family. Often used as an ornament, the large Jack-O-Lantern variety has become the national symbol for Halloween although it is very edible. The smaller sweet pumpkin or pie pumpkin is best for cooking. The flavor and texture are much more suitable for baking and it is served up annually in pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving."

3 cups mashed cooked pumpkin
1 1/3rd cup heavy cream
1/2 cup xylitol
3 eggs
2 tsp Cinnamon

pour processed mixture into a well greased pie pan ( I like Glass) place in a preheated 425 degree oven for 15 minutes, reduce heat to 350 and cook another 60 minutes. Cool completely before cutting, serve with whipped cream and a grinding of nutmeg on top.

Can you replace the eggs with egg whites?

I would think it would be OK to use the egg whites, the eggs job in the recipe is a binding agent and rising agent for the other ingredients so I would say yes.

Now, about those cup cakes with pumpkin....lets look at your recipe;  I would say why not :) I would omit the chocolate, the chocolate syrup and I would omit the iceing....instead crumble some chopped walnuts on top of the muffins prior to baking. I would also use the same spices I used in the pie. 1 1/2 cup of canned pure pumpkin should do the trick. Let us know how they turn out.

Beebs recipe

Cupcakes:
4 eggs
2 squares unsweetened bakers chocolate
1 1/2 c almond flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
5 tblsp xylitol
1/4 c oil
1/4 cup heavy cream
torani sugar free chocolate syrup
beat eggs and xylitol together, while melting chocolate square
add rest of ingredients put in sprayed lined muffing pan bake @ 350 for about 24 minutes

Chocolate raspberry icing:
4oz. cream cheese
3/4 c heavy cream
5 tsp xylitol
spoonful walden farm marshmallow dip
torani sugar chocolate and raspberry syrup to taste
mix top cooled muffins and yum!

I haven't been able to find canned pumpkin lately, guess I'm going to have to massacre the real deal!
