Pumpkin pie is a sweet pie made primarily from pumpkin. Itís believed that pumpkin pie was served at the very first Thanksgiving meal, after the pilgrims arrived to the new land (America) in the early 17th century. When eating the treat, one can easily imagine the pioneers congregating with their new friends, tasting that very same pie, and in that instant, coming to the realization that they had just bid a final farewell to their dear old England, and were finally truly home.
Pumpkin pie tastes excellent. It is one of the most beautiful pies, elegant in its simplicity. It has an excellent texture, and mildly sweet flavor which allows appreciation for each of its ingredients. Pumpkin pie is sometimes served with whipped cream on top. It pairs excellent with coffee. It should be noted that, while generally eaten with a fork, pumpkin pie has a structural integrity that allows one to pick it up (as one would a slice of pizza) with ease.
Pumpkin Pie became an official snack on June 7th 2012.
