Libby’s Pumpkin Pie 


 

Oh, boy, boy, who’s looking forward to Thanksgiving? I know I am.
Lol, I cannot believe that it’s right around the corner. My family’s favorite tradition is when we go to Hot Springs, Arkansas every year and stay in a vacation rental for a week. While we are there, we enjoy hiking, walk around downtown, shopping, relaxing and last but definitely not least eat lots and lots of food on Thanksgiving until our bellies are full and content lol. I also enjoy watching The Macy’s Thanksgiving day parade while I’m in my pajamas and drinking coffee. 😀

So anyways, as some of you know I recently have been practicing my baking for the upcoming holidays since I know that I’m terrible at it lol. But I’m determined to show baking who’s boss and not let it intimidate me. 😀 Moreover, to further improve my cooking skills an incredibly sweet family friend of ours taught me how to bake my first pie. I bet you will never guess what kind I made, if you guessed pumpkin then yep you got it right! 😀 Lol, I not only cannot believe that I baked my first pie, but I was shocked at how incredibly easy it was to make. And oh yes, of course, it was so very yummy. 😀 I think I just might make this delicious pie again for this Thanksgiving. I too made a buttermilk pecan pie that I will write about later this week.
