Two days left until Thanksgiving!

One thing you will find on almost everyone's dinner table this time of year is pumpkin pie, a classic sweet treat. Well the pumpkin pie that we know and love today didn't actually come to be until the early nineteenth century, pumpkin "pies" made by the early American colonist were more of a savory soup served in the pumpkin. A far stretch for what we are use to, now we enjoy the flaky buttery crust that houses that sweet custard that goes so well with some whipped cream. in no time the first mention of the pumpkin pie recipe was in cookbooks, in 1670 a recipe by English writer Hannah Woolley included a pie filled with layers of pumpkin, apple, rosemary, thyme and marjoram.
