Wonderful Pumpkin Pie

Janet Scott


Honestly, I should say this serves "one" because I can take that pie in a room eat it myself. Maybe I should call it "Selfish Pumpkin Pie".
My daughter in law had a piece and said to me: "This is really good pie". I told her thank you and then she said to me again: "I'm not kidding, this is really good pie"!
Anyway, it's my favorite.
I have watched many cook shows and remember a Chef saying he prefers canned pumpkin because it's cured and the flavors are more intense. I have made it from fresh pumpkin and couldn't tell the difference...so I told myself, "Self, use the can!".
