Grandma's Pumpkins

Aprie Allen


My Grandson's Christian and Brandon went on class trip to the pumpkin patch. Boy! they were so excited to pick pumpkin's. Christian came home with two pumpkins and Brandon had one. They both said, "Grandma, Can you make us a pumpkin pie." "I never taste pumpkin pie, before." Brandon says "do you know how to make it? I said, "I think I can, I'll give it a try."This was my first time ever making a pumpkin pie, I wanted it to be my very own recipe, so I looked into my cabinets for some ingredients and came up with what I thought was best in my grand-boy' pumpkin pie, besides much love.
