Paula Deen's Pumpkin Pie

I decided to venture away from the frozen Mrs. Smith's Pumpkin Pie this year. It is amazing that I haven't tried to make a pumpkin pie up to this point. I guess that I just stuck with the tradition of what my Grandmother did for years. She always used the frozen pie and it was always yummy. Truth be known though, I had never been introduced to the deliciousness of a good homemade pumpkin pie. I don't think that I can go back now.

I tried Paula Deen's recipe for pumpkin pie this year. It was amazing!! It has everything that you can expect from a pumpkin pie in it but it has the creamy addition of an entire block of cream cheese in it. My family thought that it was delicious. The only thing that I did different in the recipe is that i didn't bake the pie crust before putting the filling in it. Also, next time I will bake the pie with the crust covered so that it doesn't brown as much.

This is definitely a make again for me!
