Libby’s Pumpkin Pie

A BACK-OF-THE-BOX RECIPE

In my estimation, there is no shame in using “back-of-the-box” recipes, recipes that have been created by companies to showcase their products. Think about it, they certainly want to put their product in the best light, so you can be assured that they are going to give you good advice.

The recipe for pumpkin pie from the back of Libby’s pumpkin is no exception. I am always amazed at how people comment on this pie as though there is some magic or secret in the recipe, it’s that good. So grab yourself a can of Libby’s pumpkin and enjoy.
