Grandma’s Pumpkin Pie

This classic dessert is a family favorite and a staple at Thanksgiving

Grandma’s Pumpkin Pie

Creamy, perfectly balanced and super easy to make!

Pumpkin Pie is my son’s favorite so this classic is always on the Thanksgiving dessert table!

This recipe is from my Grandmother and it’s super easy and really YUMMY!

We’ve been making it gluten-free for years but just using a gluten-free pie crust. Sometimes I purchase a pre-made pie crust– there are so many great options these days! For this one, I made the pie crust using GFJules flour & recipe.  This was only my 3rd time making a homemade pie crust and I think I’m finally getting hang of it. My kitchen was a bit of a mess but it is so worth it!

Other Thanksgiving favorites include Apple Crisp (so much easier than making a pie!), Pecan Pie (a super easy and yummy classic), Pumpkin Sheet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting (the quickest and easiest dessert to feed crowd) and Blueberry Crumble (not traditional but my husband’s favorite!).
