Whenever I take this pie to a holiday party, potluck supper or bake sale, I take along copies of the recipe, too...I'm sure to be asked for it. With the pie's very rich taste, even a sliver is satisfying. It is a must for the dessert table for the holidays and the only pumpkin pie my family wants to have.

A dash of local for every season
