Pumpkin Pie is a Fall favorite. Its popularity rises as soon as bright, orange pumpkins show up at the markets, and as the weather cools down. Pumpkin pie remains popular all through the holiday season. We wouldn’t think of Thanksgiving dinner without this pie. And, for many of us, it’s a “must-have” pie during the Christmas and the holiday season. Here’s a traditional homemade pumpkin pie recipe where you can use your home-grown pumpkins.
This recipe starts with your own homemade puree.
If you choose not to use your own pumpkins to make a puree, that’s okay. Just use canned pumpkin puree.
Yield: 1 pie, six slices
