Pumpkin Pie!!!

Grace LOVES pumpkin pie - LOVES it! We all do. Troy's late Mother made a great pie and I make her recipe every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Several weeks ago Grace said she was going to miss pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving - I suggested we try to make it with out a crust - like a custard. I am sorry we waited too long.

It is AWESOME! Really, really awesome - and so very easy.

Unless you have your own family recipe I would suggest the Libby's Famous Pumpkin Pie recipe - gluten free and very easy to make. Instead of pouring it into a crust - pour it into a baking dish or custard cups. I did both - Grace devoured both custard cups in a matter of minutes. Place in a larger dish with about an inch of water and bake as directed on the can. Make sure it sets - it may need a tad bit longer than suggested - depending on how deep the dish is etc.

Top with whipped cream or Cool Whip (Which his GLUTEN FREE!) and enjoy. Since I only made two custard cups I couldn't try it but I would assume bruleeing it would be FANTASTIC also. Of course I am always looking for ways to use my brulee torch :)

Enjoy your Thanksgiving and have your pie and eat it too!!
