Elsie's pumpkin pie recipe

Elsie’s Pumpkin Pie (a.k.a Libby’s)

As I was collecting recipes from Grandma Elsie I, of course, had to ask for her pumpkin pie recipe. Because as many of you remember Grandma always had several pumpkin pies at our Thanksgiving gatherings along with her Famous Cheesecake. So, our conversation went something like this... Loma, "Gram can I have your pumpkin pie recipe?" and she replies, "honey, it's on the can!" Well, who knew?

But, what some of you may or may not realize, is she always made her pies fresh, early on Thanksgiving morning.
She truly was amazing!

Grandma Elsies Homemade Pie Crust Recipe

Elsie’s Pie Crust

Since my hubby, Todd, is a huge apple pie fan. I find myself making several throughout the fall season. And when I'm in the grocery store reaching for a "cheater pie crust," I hear Gram's voice ringing in my head, "LT! Don't buy that crap, it's so easy and cheaper to make pie crusts!" This crust freezes well.
