We Give Thanks for a Recipe for Cinnamon Streusel-Nut Pumpkin Pie

Even if you are not celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend take a moment to think of those less fortunate than ourselves. Today is dedicated to the holiday that encourages us to step back and give thanks for all the blessings we have.



I am grateful that I have done all that I can to guide my daughter in spreading her wings and become the beautiful woman she is today. She is loving, kind and considerate of others. On this day she has taken on the challenge of preparing the feast...yes she has learned to cook in true foodie style...sometimes a little by osmosis and sometimes by sheer talent and intuitiveness. She is attending university to become a dietician so has plenty to teach her mom as well.

Today I am sharing with you my favourite pumpkin pie recipe. I don't recall where the recipe came from after a number of years, but I can attest to the fact that it adds a welcoming end to any holiday feast. For L'il Burnt Toast it just wouldn't be October without pumpkin pie somewhere along the road. You can find my recipe for Cinnamon Streusel-Nut Pumpkin Pie in a past post.

  15. I just finished enjoying pumpkin waffles from a box of Trader Joe's mix. It was so good, because I love pumpkin. I'm looking for a different kind of pumpkin pie to make and yours is both unique and lovely.
    Happy Thanksgiving-- and thanks so much for stopping by my blog. Yours is quite lovely.

  16. Happy Thanksgiving Val to you and your family. What a wonderful looking pie and all your pumpkin recipes sound so good (I'll be checking out the recipes). Sounds like you taught your daughter alot and that she's on the right path. I hope I'm teaching my daughters traditions and skills that they can use and pass down. It's my goal anyway.
