It is Thanksgiving weekend here in Ontario, Canada and Pumpkin pies will be enjoyed by millions! Store bought pies are usually loaded with sugar and will not be very point friendly when it comes to WW. I wanted to create a lightened up pumpkin pie square, I thought the square would be better for portion control and these did not disappoint. I used greek yogurt and lowered the sugar to bring them in at just 3 smart points each on WW freestyle, they are simply delicious. They need some time to set in the fridge after baking and you can even leave them in overnight to set (I did). Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians πŸ™‚ *Note- you will need to let these set in the fridge for at least a few hours.

      Hi Brenda, I did not freeze any but I would think they should freeze ok

  1. These look so good. Unfortunately I didn’t see them until today.,lol and Thanksgiving is already over.
    I wanted to ask about the canned pumpkin – is that the plain one or the one already spiced. I love pumpkin any time of the year.

      Hi, I used the canned pure pumpkin, it is plain, nothing added to it

    I made these. They were so delicious!! Regarding the crust: mine turned into mush. I used ‘I can’t believe it’s not butter’. What did I do wrong??

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Linda, hmmm really? Was it mush pre-baking or afterward? And you used the right amount of butter/water? I’m not too sure, mine was rather dry

    I made these last week and they were good – but not great. I think my expectations were too high since everything I have made on your site is always a knockout!!!! For 3 WW smart points, they did the trick for a pumpkin fix. I think I will make them again and add a little more spices for extra flavor. My crust turned out fine.

    I made the crust with crushed gingersnaps. YUMMM!!! The points worked out the same.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Oh my yum!! I love gingersnaps, thanks for sharing, I’ll have to try that!

  6. I love that you do not use artificial sweeteners in your recipes….thanks

  7. Hi Drizzle,

    I love your recipes and website! It’s helped me tremendously on my weight-loss journey. Almost 50 pounds gone! I was wondering, could this be made without the crust and how much points would it be without it?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Ashley, so glad to hear you are enjoying the recipes and congrats on the weight loss, that is fantastic! I think you can make these without the crust, most of the points are actually in the crust so they would only be 1 point without it however I’m not too sure how they would be served as it might be a little messy

  8. I get 4 points when I add these on the WW calculator. Really enjoy your recipes.

      Did you use the numbers given? Please note as mentioned in my post that includes all ingredients (pumpkin as well which is a zero food) so the SP value will be higher
