Today I have a special treat for you. This is one of my personal favorites -- a show-stopping pumpkin pie that also happens to be a lot better for your health than traditional versions.

Here's what you need to know...

Chef's Tips:

  • This pie uses roasted pumpkin but you can easily replace that with canned pumpkin if you don't have the time or energy to roast your own this year.
  • This pie is best when allowed to cool for about an hour after baking.
  • Serve with a side of whipped cream.

Roasted pumpkin pie is the perfect subject for an email blast or Zoom cooking demo. You can also print out the recipe and distribute it ahead of Thanksgiving.
