Fresh Pumpkin Pie Recipe

pumpkinpie


This homemade pumpkin pie recipe uses fresh pumpkin, which is a little more work then our classic pumpkin pie but is well worth it.

The secret ingredient in this recipe mixes perfectly with the incredible tastes of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. That ingredient is molasses! It creates a wonderfully smooth, thick filling with a richer taste. This pumpkin pie recipe is truly old-fashioned homemade goodness in every bite.  We recommend you try our recipe for pie crust to complete the after dinner perfection.
