The countdown is on! 7 days until Thanksgiving. With the hype over Christmas starting earlier each year it can be easy to overlook this delicious, food-centric holiday. I believe you can never go wrong with a classic Pumpkin Pie. Not everything has to be super fancy or different in order to be amazing… let’s remember the basics! I did take this opportunity to try something new with the crust – I’ve seen braided pie edges all over the internet this fall so I gave it a try. It fell inward towards the center of the pie and didn’t stay perfectly round which bothered me a bit. It’s not perfect but I’m definitely glad I tried it. I used Libby’s Pumpkin Recipe for the filling and my family’s pie crust recipe (also used for Classic Apple Pie). A note for the crust – this recipe makes enough for two pies so you can either make two or use half to create a decorative edge for your pie (here are some great ides for Pie Edge Techniques). The filling is simple and quick to prepare and the crust comes together very easily as well. If you want to make this process even faster, grab a Pillsbury Pie Crust! At such a busy time of year, save time wherever you can.
