The recipe helped out when they harvested a large harvest of pumpkins, but I didn’t know what to do with them. Children generally did not like pumpkin before, but they eat such a pie with pleasure. However, I took a little less sugar. It’s easy to cook, and the pie turns out very tasty.
When we had a garden plot near our house, my mom used to make pumpkin pie for us, but only because the pumpkin grew and there was no place to use it. Today I learned that they make this kind of pie over the ocean on holidays, so I decided to take the time this weekend to make this treat for my family.
