Thanksgiving wouldn’t be the family loved holiday without Pumpkin Pie!
Generally the pie is flavored with nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and ginger. But the best part, is it is topped with whipped cream. Pumpkin pie originated in Ancient Greece. Pumpkins were called Pepon and later were adopted by the French and English. It evolved into a must have holiday dessert. It wasn’t until the recipe for the dessert was published in a French Cookbook that it started to flourish. This was back in the 17th Century, 1653 to be exact.
What makes the Pumpkin Pie we know today such a beloved dessert is the crust. In fact, this wasn’t shown on record until Amelia Simmon’s cookbook, written 100 years later. Today, we continue to cook the pie in the baked crust stylized by Simmon’s recipe. The colorful history of the dessert makes it a fun one to admire during this time of year.
The modern Pumpkin Pie is blanketed by whipped cream and this wasn’t adopted as a staple until the invention of Whipped Cream. It didn’t enter the market place until the 1930’s. The contrasting pie with the fresh fluffy whipped cream makes the combination one you cannot say “no” to.
