Low Carb Pumpkin Pie – with or without the crust

This recipe is posted as a courtesy to those following a variety of low-carb and ketogenic diets (not necessarily Meal Plans designed by me). This recipe may or may not be appropriate for you.

What would Thanksgiving be without pumpkin pie? This recipe is so delicious that you don’t really need the crust, but if you insist my flaky all-butter crust posted here would be just perfect!
