Ingredients

  • 1/2 (15-ounce) package refrigerated pie dough (such as Pillsbury)
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup 2% reduced-fat milk
  • 1/3 cup light-colored corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 cup frozen fat-free whipped topping, thawed
  • 1/2 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa (optional)

Preparation


Preheat oven to 350°.

Fit dough into a 9-inch pie plate. Fold edges under; flute. Place pie plate in freezer until ready to use.

Combine brown sugar, 1/2 cup cocoa, and flour in a large bowl. Combine milk and next 5 ingredients (milk through egg whites); stir with a whisk until well blended. Add milk mixture to brown sugar mixture; stir until combined.

Pour mixture into crust. Bake at 350° for 40 minutes or until just set. Cool on a wire rack to room temperature. Cover; chill at least 4 hours. Spread whipped topping evenly over filling; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon cocoa, if desired.



    This is a great make-ahead dessert as it needs to chill at least 4 hours.

Good to Know

Cool and creamy, you’ll love indulging in this lightened version of chocolate crème pie. Using low-fat milk and replacing half the eggs with egg whites gives the filling a silky finish without all the saturated fat and cholesterol of butter and heavy cream. Dust with unsweetened cocoa powder for an elegant touch and extra antioxidant boost.
