Pumpkin pie is a sweet
pie made primarily from pumpkin
. It’s 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.
