A Thanksgiving ‘must’, Pumpkin Pie is related to the English custard pie. The pumpkin gives the pie great lightness and the brown sugar provides the flavour. Jack o’ lanterns with cut-out eyes and toothy grins made from pumpkins are seen everywhere on Hallowe’en. Children enjoy cutting out the faces and the firm flesh can serve as a purée for the pie.
