Pumpkin Pie time!?

I love Pumpkin Pie! It is my husbands all time favorite pie! I made this pie and it was gone in one day. My husband and 4 yr. old fought over the last slice. I had to actually split it down the middle. HAHA.

I am going to have to make another one. I made Apple Pie too. That is Baileys and my favorite. It was terrific too.

I must admit, fall is my favorite. I LOVE Pumpkins!!! I love Halloween!! I love falling colorful leaves!! (I don't see that much living in FL and it truly bothers me!) and most of all I love Apple Cider and Caramel Apples.....TIS THE SEASON!

1. Beat the pumpkin, sweetened condensed milk, egg yolks, sugar and spices. I whipped the egg whites and folded it into the batter.

2. Poor into the pie crust.
