12 Dreamy pumpkin desserts that will make your pies jealous

October 14th, 2020

Pie is undoubtedly one of the most served desserts of all-time. Over the years Americans, in particular, have become more fond of serving this delicious baked dish after most meals. And it’s probably because pie is not boring- it is almost limitless in terms of flavor.

Did you know that this delicious dessert has been stuffing people’s hungry stomachs since before the Common Era?

According to Wikipedia:

“Early pies were in the form of flat, round or freeform crusty cakes called galettes consisting of a crust of ground oats, wheat, rye, or barley containing honey inside. These galettes developed into a form of early sweet pastry or desserts, evidence of which can be found on the tomb walls of the Pharaoh Ramesses II, who ruled from 1304 to 1237 BC, located in the Valley of the Kings. Sometime before 2000 BC, a recipe for chicken pie was written on a tablet in Sumer.”

If the family is getting bored with the same old dessert, then you might want to try these pumpkin desserts that are equally-delicious as pies.
