Almond Crust Pumpkin Pie

Nothing says autumn holidays like a fresh out of the oven pumpkin pie. Our Sweetened Almond Crust elevates the flavour of the pumpkin like never before and enhances the slight nuttiness of the pumpkin. Combined with warm pumpkin pie spice and a creamy custard center, you'll be glad you made the full recipe instead of just one pie.
