Make a Pie and Eat it too!

24304 Betty Crocker's Guide to Your First Thanksgiving

We are on the countdown to Thanksgiving!

Wow!  I don’t know about you, but it really snuck up on me this year.

The Thanksgiving menu is not too tough on Ketoers for the most part.  We can have turkey, brussel sprouts, swap the potatoes for cauliflower mashed potatoes, and the list goes on.  What to do about dessert though?

I have great news!  I have perfected the Keto Pumpkin Pie!  It is as simple as following the Libby’s recipe on the back of the pumpkin can.  My grandmother (who was a wonderful cook) always said to go with the recipe on the back of the can.  Why mess with a good thing that professionals have spent endless hours perfecting?

I stick with my basic almond flour and butter crust, and it is Keto perfection for a Thanksgiving treat!  Make it even better with Keto whipped cream!  Yum!!!!
