About recipe

For those planning to bake their pies this Thanksgiving, we recommend this classic take on Pumpkin Pie cooked-up by the talented team at Whole Foods Market! This perfectly spiced pumpkin pie is the ideal candidate to top off your holiday meal, especially when capped with a scoop of cranberry gelato or any other sweet-tart ice cream.
