At last, it’s starting to feel like autumn here! It even rained a little bit today (insert happy dance here)!  I’m so ready for the fall and everything related to it – rainy days, cooler weather, colourful leaves (we don’t get them much, but still), apple pies and pumpkins.

October is a perfect month for everything pumpkin. Starting from different pumpkin baked goods and soups to different crafts and jack-o’-lanterns for the Halloween. So we decided to gather a handful of delicious pies, all made of pumpkin.

Did you know that the largest pie made of pumpkin was in 2010 and weighed 3,699 lb (1,678 kg)?20 Heavenly Pumpkin Pie Recipes
