Sorry Libby's, but mine is better hands down. Everyone flips and asks for my recipe and then makes it their new holiday tradition as well. Yours is good, mine is just a lil' better. ;) Hope you all enjoy this as much as we do. More than happy to share! Happy Holidays!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Rich and creamy, this is a much better pumpkin pie recipe than is found on the can. Don't get us wrong, it's a great recipe. We love the spices Kelly adds. That's what makes this pumpkin pie recipe special. If you're not a fan of traditional pumpkin pie spice, you'll love this. It's heavier on the cinnamon. Ginger and nutmeg are more subtle. A delicious holiday pie topped with a dollop of whipped cream.
