The pumpkin pie comes out of the pan beautifully, too. I have tried it both ways and prefer it without crust. JMO

And I can contribute - in case anyone's interested - that it's the butter that makes it do that.

Don't ask how I know.

So, I must say the secret chocolate cake was a hit with the family, however, don't bother making the chocolate frosting that is posted with that recipe. I didn't really care for it and neither did the family. It looks really good, but I thought it had an odd taste to it (kind of bitter and salty). So, I will definitely make the cake again, but will do what Moon did and use fresh whipped cream and some berries instead of frosting.
The LC pumpkin cheesecake was very good as well. I made this with an almond crust, and it was good too. I'm really not crazy about the artificial sweeteners in these baked goods (I know; no real choice). Unfortunately I cannot use Splenda or any type of Sorbitol, Maltitol, or Xylitol....I used the Erythritol and it still left a funny bitter flavor. Even using saccharin was bitter. I will have to work with that sweet flavor part and see if there is something else I could do. But, all in all, it was very good. Just too much of it, and I was about the only one who ate it. So, I probably tossed a little less than 1/2 the cheesecake.
Oh, Also, on the chocolate cake, I made a double recipe to make a full two layer round cake. Next time I will only make one recipe and cut the cake in half.

I finally got around to making this 'punkin pie' recipe and it is great I had a tough time putting it in the oven and waiting for it to bake. The batter is yummy....

Who wins? Your son or the dog? My dog is a small Chihuahua and lucky for me she is very picky about what she eats. Now......if it was chicken - that is a whole different story.
