1. Choose your recipe and your pumpkin. Honestly, I think the best pumpkin pie recipe is from Libby's. Further more, I recommend using Libby's pumpkin. I have tried store-brand canned pumpkin and was not impressed. I thought it had an "earthy" flavor, and not in a good way, more like "it tastes like dirt" way. But that's just my opinion. I like Libby's Pumpkin and Farmer's Market Organic Pumpkin.
Another note about the crust: Bake your pie on the bottom shelf of your oven. This ensures that the bottom crust gets cooked through and is not soggy. It also helps prevent the top from getting too brown. I like to use a clear glass pie pan too.
Happy Baking and Happy Thanksgiving! I would also like to say how thankful I am to all who read my blog! :)
