RECIPE BACKSTORY
Pumpkin is such a hot ingredient these days and what better way to use it than in a classic pie? Probably the most popular pie recipe I've come across is this one for Libby's Pumpkin Pie. It's a recipe right off the label of Libby's canned pumpkin and I've been making it for years because it's pretty straightforward and classic. Besides, why mess with a classic?!... This pumpkin pie recipe is probably one you'll see quite often among food blogs or better yet, enjoy on your holiday table this year. Straight to the point with no frills, it's a great recipe and so easy too. The hard part is waiting for the pie to cool before enjoying! For my gluten free friends, if you can find a gluten free prepared pie crust (or make it yourself), you can enjoy this pie and eat it too!
