Blue Ribbon Recipe

We love everything about this pie! It's easy, delicious, and beautiful. Using a simple graham cracker crust is not only tasty, but a time-saver. The pumpkin filling is sweet and creamy with just the right amount of spices. What really makes this pie special is the brown sugar and pecan topping. It's sugary, crunchy, and perfect. This will be a great addition to your holiday menu.
