Pumpkin Pie Recipe
Pumpkin pie, how can you enjoy a turkey supper without pumpkin pie for desert? Now, you can make a great argument for sweet potato pie, which I do enjoy, but pumpkin is the pie that I grew up with and for that reason remains my favourite when it comes to Thanksgiving or Christmas.
Tradition is important and food is a pleasurable means of keeping traditions alive. Sitting down with family and friends can connect us with our past and prepare us for our future. A pie can tell a tale that travels all the way back through several generations.

This recipe is from ED Smith and I have to admit while I may bake apple, blueberry and sweet potato pie from scratch, I find that this prepared filling does a great job and is much less work.
Saving time does not have to mean reducing great taste.

You do not have to wait for that special event to enjoy pumpkin pie. We sometimes have it for a Saturday morning pre-breakfast treat. A great cup of coffee and a slice of pie is a great way to start the day.
