Pumpkin Pie (Holiday Meal Collection)

pump0kin-pie

Pumpkin pie is just a real treat for me during the holidays. My wife will buy me a few pumpkins and I carve and peel the meat of the pumpkin and cook it down to make a fresh filling base. I can freeze that filling to have for both Thanksgiving meal and Christmas. Pumpkin is just a pleasure to work with. Let’s make a fresh pumpkin pie to serve during the holidays.
