The Best Pumpkin Pie Recipe

This year we are traveling to my in-laws for Thanksgiving, and I will be making the pumpkin and apple pies. In my opinion, the One Pie Pumpkin Pie Recipe is the BEST. It doesn't have any flashy ingredients. No fresh ginger flown in from Jamaica. But it's good. One thing I do, because it's how my father-in-law likes it, is to add extra molasses. Any Mainer knows everything is better with a bit of molasses. That comes from the days when sugar was hard to come by and molasses was plentiful. I am tempted to use some fresh squash in the pumpkin pie recipe. But I'm afraid I'll ruin the pie, so will experiment on my own family on another day.

I may try something new for the apple pie. I've been trolling the recipes at All Recipes and searching out the 5 star ones with hundreds of reviews. It's fun. I'm making a butter crust instead of a shortening crust. We'll see how that goes!

Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!
