The most traditional Thanksgiving dessert recipe there is…
I love pumpkin pie, my son loves pumpkin pie, we eat pumpkin pie for breakfast on Thanksgiving morning, for snack and for dessert. We love pumpkin pie (I’ll say it again just in case I wasn’t clear the first time).
Here’s the pumpkin pie recipe my family has used for years. Enjoy it and have a great Thanksgiving!
