Pumpkin Pie

Looking to make your own Pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving this year? If so, you might want to consider giving this one a try. This is one of the best pumpkin pie recipes I have tried and it’s very easy to make. For this recipe we are using a pre-made pie crust or a box mix. I know this is cheating but it saves a lot of time. I prefer the Pillsbury pre-made pie crusts, all you need to do its press them into your pie dish. If you want you can substitute the cinnamon, ginger and cloves with 1 2/4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice. The taste will be slightly different but still good.

This is the perfect recipe for busy Holiday cooking; you can have this in the oven within 15 minutes. Serve with whipped cream. Enjoy.
