Classic Pumpkin Pie

November 26, 2016


This week, I realized to my dismay that I still hadn’t carved my pumpkins for Halloween. Not wanting to be late to the party, nor so early to the next, I decided to turn my pumpkins into the next best thing. Good ol' pumpkin pie.


This pumpkin pie isn’t anything extreme but boy it sure is a great tasting pie. Light, silky smooth, and full of flavor is the best way I can describe it! If you don’t want to use fresh pumpkin you sure can swap out for the canned variety as well.


So give this pie a try!
