QCan you please share an exciting pumpkin pie recipe? My recipes are very boring. Thanks!

- Sharen T.


One of the great things about the holidays is how we get to return to our old favorites. But those old favorites do start to feel a bit, well, predictable after a few years. Pumpkin pie, especially, is ripe for a remake, because rich, creamy pumpkin goes so well with flavors beyond the traditional pumpkin pie spices, cinnamon, ginger and cloves.

Have you ever thought about combining pumpkin with maple and pecan? Maple Pecan Pumpkin Pie takes everything you love about a pumpkin pie and adds earthy-sweet maple and pecans. It’s delicious.

Streusel Pumpkin Pie also starts like a traditional pumpkin pie, but a sweet, crunchy, nutty streusel topping makes it memorable.

And, if you really want to make an impression, you can’t go wrong with meringue — especially our Pumpkin Meringue Pie. We usually associate meringue with lighter, fruitier flavors, like lemon and lime. But the sweet, fluffy topping seems to lighten up a heavy pumpkin pie — and it will make your guests’ eyes light up, as well.
