Easy Pumpkin Pie Recipe

When I imagine sitting down for Thanksgiving Dinner, it is hard to not think of the delicious dessert that follows.  One of our families favorites is this Easy Pumpkin Pie Recipe.

My oldest daughter starting making pumpkin pie on her own for our Thanksgiving dessert when she was about fifteen and it has been delicious since day one.  This year we wanted to put just a little more decadent to our traditional recipe.  I suggested adding a sweetened condensed milk we had on hand by La Lechera, oh did that make an amazing difference. Rich, Decadent, Beautiful Pumpkin Pie.

Here is the Recipe So You Can Try It at Home.
