Homemade Pumpkin Pie from Scratch (Week 41, 52 New Foods) October 22 2012, 5 Comments
Homemade pumpkin pie was one of my Grandma’s
specialties. It remains one of my favorite holiday treats that brings back
wonderful memories of festive family get-togethers and made from scratch
recipes that so uniquely defined my Grandma.
The holidays wouldn’t be complete at our house without a homemade pumpkin pie. Although it's a sweet treat, I feel good serving it to friends and family because I know exactly what goes into it and it’s made with the same care and love that my Grandma took in preparing her holiday treats. I hope you enjoy this treasured family recipe that was handed down to me from my most loved family chef, Grandma Yola.
