My Mum's Thanksgiving Dinners and her Infamous Pumpkin Chiffon Pie.

Thanksgiving reminds me of my Mum's Thanksgiving Dinners and her Infamous Pumpkin Chiffon Pie.

We are often invited out for Thanksgiving dinner...almost everyone makes Pumpkin Pie, Somehow it's never the same as my Mum's pie..I think everyone thinks like me.

I've offered to bring Pumpkin Chiffon Pie and usually get a yawn, or we like the our original family pumpkin pie..Thanks everyone to their own tastes.

We're going to my Brother-in laws tomorrow for Roast Turkey Dinner(He loves Turkey and so do I!) and yes pumpkin pie...my sister in-law's pumpkin pie is really good(made from Scratch), except I miss my Mum's Chiffon Pumpkin pie.

No Problem...So this Morning I thought, why not make one just for us(me)....I drug out mum's recipe, oh dear there are two recipes, both say the same except measurement are on one and some on the other...Just to be sure I Face Timed my Daughter (who lives in Qatar and not impressed since she was about to go to bed) She confirmed the measurements, cooking, etc.

So here it is Step by Step by photo in Case you are Interested in making your own Pumpkin Chiffon Pie..ha. if you've never had a pumpkin chiffon, they are light and fluffy and to die for.
