Pumpkin Pie with Salted Pecan Brittle

Spiced Heirloom Pumpkin Pie with Salted Pecan Brittle

 

For me, pumpkin pie is a must for Thanksgiving.  It hits all my sweet spots with creaminess, fragrant pie spices and flaky buttery crust.  Also, all that whipped cream on top makes it ethereal.

My pumpkin filling recipe has been in the family since I can remember.  My youngest brother was a very picky eater as a child; and my mother would bake the filling in custard cups for him.  Some days that was all he ate.

This year I was inspired, by a photo on the cover of the November issue of Better Homes and Gardens, to replace the pie plate with a springform pan.  It made a great presentation.  I also added their pecan brittle which my family was gobbling up as soon as it was cool.
