Pumpkin Custard Pie--#Pumpkin Week

Here it is the 3rd day of #PumpkinWeek and I have decided to share a recipe for Pumpkin Custard Pie.  There are thousands of Pie recipes out there and I have never had a "bad" piece of pumpkin pie but some are better than others.  I hope you enjoy this recipe.

This event is hosted by Terri of Love and Confections and I would like to take this opportunity to thank her.  I have enjoyed this event so much and have made a lot of new blogging friends.

  1. Yummy....Richards favorite pie. But I never made one from scratch. I always baked Mrs. Smith's.

    1. They are very easy to make from scratch especially if you cheat and use refrigerated crust.

  2. Your recipe is very much like mine! I cannot wait to dig in on Thanksgiving!!!

  3. Sounds fantastic! ~ Bea @ The Not So Cheesy Kitchen

  4. This sounds so rich and delicious! Love the twist on normal pumpkin pie.

  5. You can never go wrong with a good homemade pumpkin pie. SO much better with homemade puree!
