The Twelve Days of Christmas

On the NINTH day of Christmas, my true love gave to me ...
Eight hands for cleaning
Seven stockings hanging
Six bottles of wine
Five carats gem
Four suggestions
Three pixies
Two chocolates
And a holiday memory
* because I absolutely LOVE the crockpot!
Try this recipe:

Crustless Pumpkin Pie
1 can pumpkin (15 oz)
1 can evaporated milk (12 oz)
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup Bisquik-type mix (try Pamela's baking mix for Gluten-free)
2 eggs
2 T butter, melted
1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
1/8 tsp ginger
2 tsp vanilla extract

The Directions:
4 quart crockpot and it was the perfect size according to the timed directions.  If you only have a larger sized crockpot, use it, but the batter will spread out even more and it will cook faster.  Do not use a smaller one, it will take a very long time to cook.  Plan accordingly. 

Spray cooking spray into your crockpot.

Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients, and whisk until fully blended.  No need to use a mixer.

Pour the batter into the prepared crockpot.
Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours, or on low for about 6 hours.  (This is with the 4 quart crockpot).
Chech your "pie" after 2 hours on high, and 3 hours on low, then check every 30 minutes. 

When fully cooked, the pie will look just like a finished pumpkin pie.  The batter will have browned and will crack in a few places.  The center will have set enough for you to touch it without getting batter on your finger.

Let sit in crockpot until room temperature, then spoon into serving dishes and top with whipped cream.
