Preparation Time: 15 min

Level of Difficulty: Difficult
The use of Neufchatel cheese makes this soufflé taste like a warm pumpkin cheesecake, but with much less fat and fewer calories.


  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 15 oz canned pumpkin, puree
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup fat-free evaporated milk
  • 4 oz Neufchatel cheese, softened
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 3 large egg(s), separated
  • 1 large egg white(s)
  • 1/3 cup sugar


  • Heat oven to 350ºF. Coat a 2 1/2-quart soufflé dish with cooking spray, sprinkle with 2 tablespoons sugar. Over medium heat, cook pumpkin until no longer steaming, about 8 minutes. Mix together cornstarch and evaporated milk, whisk into pumpkin. Bring to boil; remove from heat and cool.

  • Beat Neufchatel with pumpkin pie spice and ginger; beat in yolks to combine. Beat in cooled pumpkin mixture.

  • Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Add remaining 1/3 cup sugar one tablespoon at a time until stiff. In three additions, fold whites into pumpkin mixture. Pour into prepared dish. Bake until puffed and a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes.
