No matter how many helpings of turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes are consumed during Thanksgiving dinner, there is always room for pumpkin pie!
Pumpkin pie is a Thanksgiving staple that is here to stay — and while there are many variations and creative twists on the classic, a basic-but-perfect recipe is a must in any respectful baker’s arsenal.
A homemade, flaky pie crust is the base for this Great Pumpkin pie recipe, but canned pumpkin actually wins out over fresh when it comes to an ideal texture and ingredient harmony. Combine that with eggs, sugar, heavy cream and spices (including a secret spice) and you’ve got yourself the perfect bite of pumpkin heaven.
Don’t forget to top it all with homemade whipped cream to send your loved ones straight into food coma bliss.
