Here it is. The Thanksgiving dinner signature dessert. Pumpkin pie.

A little piece of heaven everyone looks forward to during this time of year. I am very excited and proud of this treat; I am confident you all will enjoy it as much as my husband, friends and I have. We've eaten it slowly and carefully to fully savor every single bite. I've even served it with our tiny little espresso spoons, that way puny bites are guaranteed ;). Crazy much?! Nah...just crazy about this pie.

Thanksgiving is getting closer and closer! What are your plans for it this year?

Tools You'll Need for Crust:

  •        9" pie pan
  •        Food processor
  •        Measuring cups

  4. Using your spatula, scrape the mixture into your pie pan and using your fingers, spread the batter thinner across the bottom of the pan and thicker around the edges of the crust.
  5. Put the pie pan in the oven and bake for 15 minutes (place a baking dish underneath pie pan, so the crust doesn't burn).
  6. Remove the crust from the oven and let cool for about 15 minutes (while you prepare the filling).
