I usually make pies for Thanksgiving and cakes for Christmas. I will change the pie of my choice each year but Mr. D has to have pumpkin pie no matter what. I am sharing the recipe for the pumpkin pie I make for Mr. D every year. As he is diabetic, the only change I really make to it is substitute baking Splenda for the sugar. I cut this recipe from the label of a can of Libby’s pumpkin years ago and it has become a family favorite.
I could not decide this year whether I wanted Sweet Potato Pie or Pecan Pie. I saw this recipe from Pillsbury for Sweet Potato Pecan Pie and knew that was what I wanted to make.
I am super excited about making my pies this year as I made my pie crusts for the very first time. I prepared them according to the pie crust recipe by Ina Garten that I shared last week. The crusts were not hard to make and they are just chilling in the fridge right now.
Happy Baking and thanks for stopping by.
