Grandpa’s {Special} Pumpkin Pie

 

Layered Walnut Pumpkin Pie at TidyMom.net

 

On my mom’s side of the family, my Grandpa was the cook! One of the first few years I was married, he shared his secret Pumpkin Pie recipe with me. The two of of us worked on it and tweaked it a bit – the original recipe called for solid pumpkin and you made it into pie filling – but we adapted it, so it can be made with the store bought canned Pumpkin Pie Mix/Filling.

This is not like traditional pumpkin pie, it’s layered with Cool Whip, so it is light and fluffy and is kept and served cold.

The recipe makes 2 pies. Every year I make them and take them to my husbands side of the family. There have been years I’ve made 4 pies, everyone likes it THAT much!! For years there were members on that side of the family that would beg me for the recipe, and I wouldn’t give it to them! LOL So don’t you feel lucky?! I knew if I gave my recipe out, then they would be making it too, and it would no longer be “the coveted pie at Thanksgiving”
