I guess I am in the minority, but I don't care for the traditional pumpkin pie.  So, this year I have to make one as MIL has to have it or it isn't Thanksgiving.  She is going to bake it on Wednesday, but I do get to pick the recipe.  So, I can do a chilled Pumpkin Chiffon (which hubby isn't too keen on), or a pumpkin pie that calls for whipping the egg whites (from Southern Living 1980 cookbook) and folding them in to make it lighter, or a more traditional pie but made with Amaretto (from Bon Appetit magazine).  I am leaning toward the one with the whipped egg whites.

Are you making pumpkin pie?  What recipe are you using?

I don't like pumpkin pie either but I made a pumpkin cheesecake that we had last night that was good. It was lighter than most cheesecake, more the consistancy of a pumpkin pie. It was a big hit.

Yum, sounds wonderful.  One year I made pumpkin creme brulee, but my MIL wasn't at that dinner.  Pie baking is tomorrow!
