Thanksgiving Desserts

It’s hard to believe that it’s almost time for Thanksgiving again.  It’s such a wonderful time to gather and share are gratitude with those we love.  At our home, Thanksgiving is not complete without homemade pumpkin pie.  My grandmother’s recipe is so simple and delicious that there’s no reason to buy a frozen or store bought pie.

The variety of spices in this recipe give it it’s depth and flavor.  I  personally prefer the small measurements of spices but experiment and see what your family loves best.
