The holiday season is officially underway, and with it comes all manner of merry treats, most of them decidedly indulgent and full of all the sweet decadence you crave this time of year. But it turns out that it is possible to keep things light while enjoying the best of the dessert course. This week's Most Popular Pin of the Week, a time-tested pudding pie, delivers all the rich flavor and texture you know and love — with ingredients that are mostly healthful. The secret is using just a bit of butter in the crust and opting for low-fat milk to make the chocolate pudding filling.
