Can anything be better in the Fall season than a classic Pumpkin Pie Recipe? It speaks so much to a thankful harvest, the coming winter, family and friends and all the things we have to be grateful for in our lives. Here, blogger and mother of five (yes, you read that right—five kids!) Jen, has put together a great pumpkin pie recipe that includes a crust made from scratch. Try it. The scratch crust makes all the difference.

Shortening is not the best fat to use, but since we only use it once in a while, do not worry about it in this recipe. It is the best way to get that true traditional flavor that we all want in a Pumpkin Pie Recipe. And shortening almost always guarantees fabulous results. Do you remember, in the movie, The Help, how the maid pulls out shortening and proceeds to talk about how it can be used? Not just in the kitchen but around the house to repair squeaks and all manner of ills? Well, it is true. Shortening is pretty amazing stuff. The filling for this pie contains a surprise ingredient that adds a hint of heat to this pie, and that is fresh ginger. Ginger is a fantastic flavor when put with pumpkin. It just allows the pumpkin flavor to pop in your mouth. Ginger also aids in digestion, so if you are serving this pie after a huge dinner, it is a great ingredient to ensure that people’s tummies feel good as they digest their meal.

Whipped cream tops this home made dessert. Be sure to use the real deal after you have spent so much time and energy making the crust and filling from scratch. Enjoy this recipe this year, and it will become the one you use every year going forward.Find out how to make this recipe and many others at the website Cincy Shopper.
