Pumpkin...about 3.1415% sized slice. The time warp kicked my butt!
I just use the recipe on the can of organic puree and I make a roasted pecan crust for it.

I have 3.415926535 recipes for PIE! Here's one.

1 Piecrust
3 Eggs
1 C Dark Corn Syrup
2/3 C Sugar
Pinch Salt
6 Tb Butter, melted
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla
1/2 C Ground Pecans (from ¾ C of halves)
1 C Chopped Pecans
1 1/2 C Pecan Halves

Preheat the oven to 350º F.

Using the pie plate as a template cut out a circle of heavy-duty foil to use as a heat shield to be applied to the top of the pie during cooking. Shape the foil over the plate so It will cover the edges of the crust.

Prepare the piecrust and place it into a 9” pie plate. Shape the edge decoratively. Chill.

Mix the eggs, syrup, sugar, salt, butter, vanilla and ground pecans in a bowl.

Spread the chopped pecans on the piecrust.

Slowly pour the liquid mixture on top of the chopped pecans.

Arrange the pecan halves in a concentric circle pattern on top.

Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes or until firm. Apply the foil cover after about 45 minutes of cooking.

Cool before serving.

You know I tried to make a math pie once but it came out TOO dry and tasteless for me!
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Stupid time change killed me too. And here's a family favorite in our house.
