A super delicious Pumpkin Pie for Thanksgiving and dessert to grace your Thanksgiving table.
Pumpkin pie is a dessert pie with a spiced, pumpkin-based custard filling. The pumpkin and pumpkin pie are both a symbol of harvest time, and pumpkin pie is generally eaten during the fall and early winter.
Why is pumpkin pie used for Thanksgiving?
Northeastern Native American tribes grew squash and pumpkins. The Native Americans brought pumpkins as gifts to the first settlers and taught them the many uses for pumpkins. This led to serving pumpkin pie at the first Thanksgiving in America about 50 years later.
How early can you bake pies for Thanksgiving?
It’s best to bake your pies two to three days before Thanksgiving, but at least one day prior to being served to develop flavors and set fruit pie juices (at room temperature) or custards (in the refrigerator).
