      RECIPE TITLE "Classic Pumpkin Pie Recipe"
    Source: Cooking Light magazine,
    Courtesy of

    yields12 servings (serving size: 1 wedge and about 1 tablespoon topping)

    The quintessential fall dessert, pumpkin pie is the end-all sweet to your Thanksgiving meal or for any meal come autumn. Brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, eggs and evaporated milk are blended with pumpkin puree. The filling is poured into an already prepared pie shell then baked. The whipped cream topping has a surprise to it; it's spiked with amaretto.


    For the Filling:
    3/4 cup packed brown sugar
    1 3/4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    One (12 ounce) can evaporated low-fat milk
    2 large egg whites
    1 large egg
    One (15 ounce) can unsweetened pumpkin

    For the Crust:
    1/2 (15 ounce) package refrigerated pie dough (such as Pillsbury)
    Cooking spray

    For the Topping:
    1/4 cup whipping cream
    1 tablespoon amaretto (almond-flavored liqueur)
    2 teaspoons powdered sugar


    Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

    To prepare filling, combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add pumpkin, and stir with a whisk until smooth.

    To prepare crust, roll dough into an 11-inch circle; fit into a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray. Fold edges under and flute.

    Pour pumpkin mixture into the crust. Place pie plate on a baking sheet. Place baking sheet on lowest oven rack. Bake at 425 degrees F for 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (do not remove pie from oven); bake an additional 50 minutes or until almost set. Cool completely on wire rack.

    To prepare topping, beat cream with a mixer at high speed until stiff peaks form. Add the amaretto and powdered sugar, and beat until blended. Serve with pie.

    Refrigerated pie dough makes this recipe simple to prepare. Bake the pie on a baking sheet in the lower third of the oven to encourage a crisp crust.

    Giving Thanks,
    Giving Thanks, In the years since Abraham Lincoln made it a national day of thanksgiving in 1863, Thanksgiving has become our most beloved holiday, and 97 percent of American's (more than 280 million people) eat turkey on Thanksgiving Day. But beyond the bird, the menu of this quintessentially American meal is as varied as the cultures of our nation's melting pot--and every recipe tells a story. Giving Thanks is a fascinating ode to Thanksgiving food and culture from the ultimate Thanksgiving authority, Plimoth Plantation, the museum of the 17th-century Plymouth Colony. Perfect for parents, kids, teachers, history buffs, and of course Thanksgiving cooks, Giving Thanks is a true keepsake cookbook, meant to be shared and enjoyed year after year. Thanksgiving specialists Kathleen Curtin and Sandra Oliver trace the colorful history of the holiday, from the real story of the First Thanksgiving to 21st-century customs. But beyond the compelling history, Thanksgiving is about food... so too is this delicious assortment of more than 80 recipes, from appetizers to desserts, old-fashioned mincemeat pies to modern pumpkin cheesecake, generously seasoned with plenty of fascinating trivia.
