The long winter recipe

I started reading The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder to Rhiannon last month.  As soon as we read the chapter about Ma baking a green pumpkin pie she begged to make one. 

I had expected this reaction, having made more than a few recipes from the Laura Ingalls Wilder cookbook myself over the years. 

So back in September, when harvesting our pumpkins I peeled and sliced a small green pumpkin, seasoned out like an apple pie & froze it.
Tonight we finally made it. 

 I told her she could eat it for breakfast. (After all, Almanzo ate pie for breakfast in Farmer Boy)
