Thankful Pumpkin Pie is made with fresh pumpkin and a homemade crust, plus a heartfelt message on top.
I got the idea for this pie from Sunday school last week. Once a month, I help teach my son’s 5th grade Sunday school class. A very clever girl, named Kirby, came up with the cutest idea for a craft project. We made “thankful pies” out of paper plates. One plate was decorated to look like your favorite pie with one piece cut out. Then place on top of another plate with lines drawn on it to show where you would cut out your 8 pieces of pie. Each pie slice stated something you were thankful for. I even made one because I thought it was such a great idea and so fun. I made a cherry pie and these are the things I’m thankful for: Jesus, family, America, health, pets, baking, bible study, and seasons. My son made a blueberry pie. This is what he is thankful for: being a Christian, family, sports, survival and a roof over his head.
