Having never had a Pumpkin pie before, I’m not sure why I haven’t as this was actually delicious! As a Vegan I don’t generally cheat often, but with this I did! 🙂 It was definitely worth the cheat.

Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Pumpkin pie is a traditional sweet dessert, often eaten during the fall and early winter, especially for Thanksgiving and Christmas in the United States and Canada. The pumpkin is a symbol of harvest time and featured also at Halloween. The pie consists of a pumpkin-based custard, ranging in color from orange to brown, baked in a single pie shell, rarely with a top crust. The pie is generally flavored with cinnamon, powdered ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. Allspice is also commonly used, and can replace the clove and nutmeg as its flavor is similar to both combined. Cardamom and vanilla are also sometimes used as batter spices. (according to WIKI)

Pumpkin Pie is like an American Autumn /Winter staple, so I though it would be rude not to try and make this awesome creamy spiced pie. What was great is that I used my homemade Pumpkin Spice Mix in the this pie.

Now I’m not sure if this should be served warm or cold – I personally preferred the pie slightly warm.
