Traditional Pumpkin Pie

Let’s face it.  Traditional pumpkin pie is in the “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it” category. Every Thanksgiving I embark on yet another futile effort to find THE pumpkin pie.  You know where it is?  On the back on the Libby’s pumpkin can.  Sure, go ahead and roast your own pumpkin or get all […]

Caramel Pumpkin Pie

There is a distinct rank and file to my Thanksgiving table: 1. Pumpkin Pie 2. Pumpkin Pie 3. Oyster dressing 4. Turkey Nothing upstages pumpkin pie in my book. About three weeks before Thanksgiving, I find myself drawn to every magazine at the grocery store. “Your best Thanksgiving Ever!” (Yes!) “A Pumpkin Pie to Wow […]

Pumpkin Pie Bites

* Update – I made these hand pies again and used a 2 1/2 inch diameter glass to make them a little smaller. This allowed me to get a dozen from 1 recipe of dough and the serving is a little smaller (which means less calories!). Fall has me feeling like pie (shock, so did […]
