For 2017’s Thanksgiving I really wanted to make this. I had never made pumpkin pie and it seemed like it could be fun to try. Especially since I have such good luck with this cookbook and she made it sound so good. And that is all from someone who is indifferent to pumpkin pie. But then the Chiplet was born and making a pie wasn’t really something I was thinking of at that point. Especially when we ended up having a quiet Thanksgiving with only 3 of us eating it. So fast forward to this year. I liked that most of the parts could be done ahead and in sections. Also, the Fudgelet really wanted to try different traditional foods so I went full traditional.
