    I love this pie! This year I put the potatoes in the food processor and whipped until creamy - I can't even tell you how much better it made the pie! I also ran out of the gingersnap cookies and added a few cinnamon grahm crackers to complete the requirement and it was also very good. I never made the whipped cream until this year and I'll make sure to always serve it with it - it's just an amazing combo.

    We've always been a pumpkin pie family at Thanksgiving, but this year I decided to mix it up. My ENTIRE family (consisting of about 20 people) LOVED this pie. They even requested an encore pie the next day! I suppose that speaks for itself!
