I have had this recipe for some time and think that it is a terrific rendition of pumpkin pie. The apple butter lends its fruity flavor to this harvest pie.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

If you love a classic pumpkin pie, you'll love this apple butter twist. It gives the pie a slightly fruity flavor that tastes of fall. The pie's seasoning leans towards more of a cinnamon flavor, but the ginger and nutmeg are in the undertones. Cool and creamy, the filling is exactly what you'd expect from a pumpkin pie. As it cools, the filling does shrink a little from the crust but, add a little extra whipped cream and no one will notice. A delicious pumpkin pie for the holidays.
