I have never met anyone who makes this recipe. My great-grandmother used to make it too. Growing up our Thanksgiving holidays were non-traditional as the men-folk were always out hunting. We always cooked a turkey a few days early so they’d have some delicious turkey sandwiches while lying in the fields waiting for the ducks to fly over, or while trudging through the swamps looking for moose.
But one thing that is traditional around our household is Nanna’s Chiffon Pumpkin Pie! See if you can find the secret ingredient in the recipe below:
Bake 2 pie shells (you can cheat and use the frozen type.)
1 cup brown sugar (divided), 1 ¼ c. canned pumpkin puree (small tin)
