My poor husband. He just wants a plain old piece of pumpkin pie. Unfortunately for him, I’m not really a fan of pumpkin pie, unless it’s buried in whipped cream. As a matter of fact, I have a roundup of One Dozen Alternatives to Pumpkin Pie that I put together in time for Thanksgiving this year. Honestly, doesn’t this Turtle Pumpkin Pie look so much better than ordinary pie anyway? And the best part (well, other than the fact that it’s dripping with caramel) is that it’s a no-bake pie. Those are my favorite.
