The best pie this year is …..

I made three pies this year, the pecan was too sweet, the deep dish winter fruit pie is great (but a bit watery)…this was voted the winner for this Thanksgiving!

Molasses-and-Spice Pumpkin Pie

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons cornstarch

  • 1 15-ounce can pure pumpkin
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 1 ½ tablespoons mild-flavored (light) molasses

Mix first 6 ingredients in large bowl to blend. Add pumpkin, eggs, cream, milk, and molasses; whisk filling to blend.
