Helpful hints

  •  Crumble topping can be omitted to decrease carbohydrates and calories, if desired.
  • Look for unrefrigerated almond milk and select a brand that does not contain phosphate additives.
  • You can serve this pie as a ‘mock’ pumpkin pie. Carrots are approximately 50% lower in potassium than pumpkin.
  • Fun decorating tip: Lightly hold a pumpkin cookie cutter on top of unbaked filling and sprinkle crumb topping around cookie cutter leaving a pumpkin design.
  • Brooke uses Pillsbury® rolled pie crust.

Carrot Pie with Crumb Topping
CharlieAnn says:

Do you think this would work with Coffee Rich or soy milk? Dietitian comment: I would try rice milk or almond milk--but look for a brand without phosphate additives.

Carrot Pie with Crumb Topping
MGD2Lite says:

I'm wanting to make this for Thanksgiving since Pumpkin is a NO NO...CAN you substitute [INVALID]No Cholesterol Liquid Egg[INVALID] like Egg Beaters for the two Eggs to lower the Fat content? And eliminate the Crumb topping to get rid of that butter too, Or would the pie not 'set' if you used egg substitute? Doctor says I have to go LOW FAT due to my Triglicerides being too high....THANKS! Dietitian comment: Yes if you use a low cholesterol egg product and eliminate the crumb topping fat is decreased by 6 grams per serving. When you replace the eggs with egg substitute it may effect the cooking time so you may want to check the pie for sooner to see if it is done.
