Thanksgiving is just around the corner. What’s on your menu? I’m still working on mine. I’ll be hosting our Thanksgiving dinner this year. So exciting!

One thing I know for sure is to bake this light pumpkin mousse pie. It’s light, but not calorie-wise. Its texture is so light and mousse-like, hence the name.

Although it’s not your classic pumpkin pie, it still has everything you like, from delicious creamy filling full of pumpkin flavor to crispy buttery crust.

It does require an extra step of separating and whipping the egg whites, but it’s totally worth it. You will be rewarded with the lightest and fluffiest filling. No matter how full you’re, you will wolf down at least two servings in no time. At least, that’s what I did!

You’ll need a deep pie dish for this recipe, or you can use 9-inch springform pan, as I used below.

And here are the step-by-step photos for you.

  1. This is hands down the best pumpkin pie recipe ever! This page was my very first pin on my Pinterest account. My husband loves pumpkin chiffon pie for his November 23rd birthday. For years, it had been a struggle to be sure it was done all the way. I tried this recipe for the first time in November 2014. Last year, I crossed my fingers and hoped it wasn’t a fluke the year before. It came out perfect again! So here we are again in 2016, and I’m confident it will be wonderful. Thank you for such a wonderful recipe! Who would have thought a springform pan could have made all the difference!

    • Laura, this made my day! So happy you’ve been enjoying this pie. And thank you for your feedback. It means a lot to me. 

      P.S. This year, I tried deep pie dish, instead of springfrom pan, and it worked great too. 

  2. I would love to eat that pumpkin pie
