So Thankful for Pumpkin Pie

1 hr 30 mins

This “So Thankful” Pumpkin Pie is a delicious end to a rich Thanksgiving dinner. With every melt-in-your mouth, you will be asking for another slice in no time.

In November when the leaves turn to breathtaking shades of red, orange, and auburn brown, I love to take a moment to reflect on what I am thankful for this year. With the holidays coming up, especially Thanksgiving, it’s a great time for family and friends to sit around the fire or the dinner table letting each other know who or what is important to each and every one of them.

During the holidays I have always loved switching on the television to find Martha Stewart’s cooking show on air. I’d leave it on for the whole morning or afternoon and watch her making pumpkin pies, roasting turkeys, or icing a cake.

The filling for this Pumpkin Pie recipe can be made in advance and stored in the fridge for up to three days. Bake it and eat it fresh or do eat it for breakfast the next morning. Enjoy with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream on top for a classic pumpkin pie dessert.
