And also. We are going on a cruise on Thursday. Did I mention that?
We’re actually celebrating Thanksgiving on Wednesday with my family before we leave for our trip, but I’ve been making Thanksgivingy things for over a week now for various catering gigs, cooking class, etc. Tis the season!
I’m absolutely wiped out, and the thought of this pie on Wednesday is keeping me going. It’s an old family recipe (my mom’s recipe card was written by my great grandmother), and I can’t remember a Thanksgiving without it. It’s FLUFFY pumpkin pie with egg whites and spices and a graham crust, which I love. I make some modifications to the recipe to ensure that the egg whites stay stiff AND to healthen up the crust. No butter! No sugar! It’s legit.
