Pumpkin Chiffon Pie

I've had so many people ask me for this recipe. This used to be my absolute favorite pie ever. Then I concocted my apple pie recipe which has passed the pumpkin chiffon in the popularity race. Well, as far as I'm concerned anyway. But this...this is my second favorite pie ever. If I were stranded on a deserted island I would want this pie. It's delicious. Light and fluffy. Melt-in-your-mouth yummy. The vanilla and pumpkin and cinnamon dance in your mouth with every sweet bite.

The light and fluffy pumpkin mixture...
dancing on the spoon  

Can't you almost taste it? I used fresh nutmeg that I bought at the The Spice House. I've blogged about the Spice House before. Right here. Back to nutmeg....Mmmmm fresh nutmeg. It's strong so I didn't use as much as the recipe called for.

Since we're on the subject of pumpkins, this is my most favorite ceramic pumpkin I own. Okay, it's the only one I own. But still....

From Pier One's fall 2008 collection...I think 

Okay here it is, the melt-in-your-mouth pumpkin chiffon pie:

Double, triple, quadruple YUM!

The recipe? Oh sorry, it's a family secret.


  1. Oh my...this looks divine!! I will be over in say....7 hours? That's about how long it will take me to drive there, right? Really though, the pie looks deelish!!

  2. 7 hours is good! I'll be home from work by then. I'll make some hot chocolate :D

  3. yum yum yum yum yum. best pie ever.

  4. A new low. Your meanest post to date. Seriously. Can you hear me crying from Kentucky?

  5. Mean? Why that's just silly. I wanted to describe the wonderful tastes of the fluffy pumpkin chiffon pie ;) ...which reminds me, it's time for a slice.

  6. Is this the recipe they talked about on her radio show Thursday afternoon? They talked about using a splash of Goslings Rum??

  7. This is actually a family recipe that my mother gave me. I've never thought about putting rum in it. I bet that would be delicious! :)

  8. Seriously??? You won't share the recipe? Wow!
