Classic Pumpkin Pie

My grandmother used to make a delicious pumpkin chiffon pie. I started making it when I started making Thanksgiving but it was never quite as good my grandma’s pie.  Also, it is a pie that takes a long time to make and gelatin is involved which, as a vegetarian is kind of a no-no as gelatin comes from critters.  I have tried several pumpkin pie recipes over the years looking for a good one that does not involve gelatin and that’s a bit easier than my Grandma’s.  Until now, I have had little success with the Thanksgiving pumpkin pie.

I am now a self-proclaimed pumpkin pie wizard.  Here’s my secret – do not use fresh pumpkin.  In the past, I would buy a sugar pumpkin and roast it and mash it, and use it for the pie but the thing is, the store-bought stuff makes a better pie. Go figure. In addition, this year – I found a perfect recipe. It’s a Kitchn recipe and it’s super fattening and really delicious.

I made one for my Father and Deanne along with the Thanksgiving meal that I dropped off to them, and they liked it so much that they asked me to make another one (which I did). It’s a pretty pie and you can make it even prettier with decorations on the top. Here it is.
