Jen’s Pumpkin Delight

Nothing says Thanksgivin like Pumpkin Pie….unless like us it’s not a favorite.  I know pumpkin spice everything is popular this time if year. It’s just not something we love.  After many hours of online research and taste testing, this became the show stopper dessert.  My brother the chef loves it as well!  I found the basic recipe and have added my touches and time savers.  The only warning I give is there will not be any leftovers. You may need 2 of these next year.Pyrex Basics 3 Quart Glass Oblong Baking Dish with Red Plastic Lid -13.2 INCH x 8.9inch x 2 inch  by Pyrex  Pyrex Basics 3 Quart Glass Oblong Baking Dish with Red Plastic Lid -13.2 INCH x 8.9inch x 2 inch
