Best Recipes for Pumpkin Pie
As Thanksgiving approaches, the first thing on everybody’s mind is turkey. But coming in a close second is pumpkin pie! On that third Thursday in November, the meal isn’t complete until you’ve had your slice of rich and creamy pie filled with warm autumn spices. While I’d say most of us pick up canned pumpkin, I know there’s some people out there who go all out and roast their own pumpkins to make their pies completely from scratch. Speaking of making pie from scratch, do you make your own crust? I always struggle with crust, and honestly, I’m happy to pour my pumpkin pie filling into a pan and bake it without a crust at all. But I know that flaky, homemade crust is the best part of the pie for many people. So whether you go with homemade whipped cream, or even opt for Cool Whip or the stuff from a can, you have to admit that this all-American dessert is truly the highlight of the meal.
But these recipes prove that pumpkin pie shouldn’t be limited to one day a year, because there’s so many different ways to make it. You can always stick with the classic, or take that traditional pumpkin pie and infuse it with some bourbon or top it with a crumbly streusel. Maybe there’s some allergies, health conditions, or other dietary and lifestyle choices you have to on your guest list. Those folks (including myself), don’t have to miss out when you can make crustless pumpkin pie, gluten free pumpkin pie, or even try vegan, paleo, or low carb recipes. Maybe you need to feed a large crowd or just want to try something different. Mini pies, extra-large slab pies, or pumpkin pie bars are just what you need.
