Roasted Pumpkin Pie
After the turkey has been cleared and the leftovers have been stored, it's time for what everyone really came to Thanksgiving dinner to eat: the pie. These pumpkin pie recipes feature classic recipes and a few fun twists, including pumpkin pie cheesecakes and cake. When you've had enough pumpkin pie, use the leftovers to make ice cream; we'll show you how.
First up, we're featuring a classic pumpkin pie that calls for roasting a whole pumpkin first. You won't regret the time it takes to roast the pumpkin once you taste how truly delicious freshly roasted pumpkin is. You'll never use the canned stuff again.
By roasting the pumpkin whole, you avoid cutting it open and scooping out the seeds and membrane. If you'd like, serve pie with a dollop of lightly sweetened 2% reduced-fat yogurt.
