2 Tbsp. unsweetened almond milk or fat-free milk
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 egg white, lightly beaten

2/3 cup sugar-stevia blend

1can(15 oz.) pumpkin
1egg beaten
3Tbsp.chopped toasted almond slivers
1Tbsp.very finely minced crystallized ginger

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Coat a 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. To prepare the crust, add the graham crackers to a food processor and process to crumb. You should have about 1 3/4 cups.
  3. Add the remaining crust ingredients and process until you have a moist mixture. If necessary, add a bit more milk and process to help the crust hold together. Press the crust into the bottom and sides of the prepared pan.
  4. In a blender or food processor, combine the stevia-sugar blend, ricotta cheese, almond milk, almond extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, salt, pumpkin, and egg. Process until smooth. Spoon the pumpkin mixture into the prepared crust.
  5. Combine the almonds, crystallized ginger, and brown sugar, and sprinkle over the pumpkin filling. For a pretty presentation, leave 1/2 inch around the outer edge of the tart free of topping.
  6. Bake for about 45 minutes, or until the filling is set. Remove the tart from the oven and let it cool on a rack for 1 hour before serving.
