Is it me or does it seem like we only eat pumpkin pie this time of the year?
I guess that in a way it is a good thing that we only eat pumpkin pie this time of the year because it certainly gives us something to look forward to.
Classic Homemade Pumpkin Pie
I love that Pumpkin Pie is a staple this time of the year.
We enjoy pumpkin pie as a dessert with friend and family just because pumpkin pie is such a festive fall treat. We also, most importantly if you ask me, enjoy pumpkin pie as part of a holiday dinner. Thanksgiving seems to be synonymous with pumpkin pie- just after turkey of course…
Pumpkin Pie is such a fun and tasty treat this time of the year! Having a classic recipe for pumpkin pie reminds us of family gatherings of long ago.
The kind of pumpkins that we use for baking are actually pretty wholesome.
Okay, we may use the pumpkin that comes from a can, at least I do out of convenience. There is a lot of good about pumpkin.
