1 cup chicken broth
1 egg white

For corn bread, combine the first five ingredients in a large bowl. Combine the buttermilk, applesauce and egg whites; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Pour into an 8-in. square baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray. Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

In a large nonstick skillet, cook the sausage, celery, onion and red pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Transfer to a large bowl. Crumble corn bread over mixture. Add apples, chestnuts, parsley, garlic, thyme and pepper. Stir in broth and egg white.

Transfer to a 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray. Cover and bake at 325 for 40 minutes. Uncover; bake 10 minutes longer or until lightly browned. Yield: 16 servings.

Note: Dressing can be prepared as directed and used to stuff a 10- to 12-pound turkey.

Traditional Pumpkin Pie

2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup shortening
4 to 6 tablespoons cold water

Filling
6 eggs
1 can (29 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
2 cups packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon each ground cloves, nutmeg and ginger
2 cups evaporated milk

In a large bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Divide pastry in half. On a floured surface, roll out each portion to fit a 9-in. pie plate. Place pastry in plates; trim pastry to 1/2 in. beyond edge of plate. Flute edges.

For filling, beat eggs in a large mixing bowl. Add pumpkin, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, cloves, nutmeg and ginger; beat just until smooth. Gradually stir in milk. Pour into pastry shells.

Bake at 450 for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350; bake 40-45 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool pies on wire racks for 1 hour. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving. Refrigerate leftovers. Makes 2 pies (6-8 servings each).
