In our family, this unique pie is the most anticipated dessert each Thanksgiving and Christmas. Why? It’s the one everyone talks about, and can’t get enough of. The recipe was given to a wonderful cook in our family the same year bell-bottom pants were the rage, 1973. When she shared it for the first time, wearing her bell-bottom pants, people swooned, keeled over, and almost passed out. You’ll understand when you taste the spicy pumpkin mixture, as it merges with the middle layer of whipped cream to create layers of velvety goodness. It does require a little extra effort, but you will be rewarded with heaps of praise. Don’t forget the bell-bottom pants.
