Thanksgiving & Indigenous People's Day Meal Plan Recipes

Pumpkin Pie

Apple Cobbler

Apple Cobbler



1 Cup Brown Sugar 1/8 TSP Ground Cloves 

1 Tablespoon Flour 

½ Teaspoon Nutmeg

½ Teaspoon Salt 

1 ¼ Cup Milk

1 Teaspoon Cinnamon 

16 oz. Pumpkin Puree 

1 Teaspoon Ground Ginger 

Pie Crust (Check out our almond crust in our blueberry  cheesecake recipe, it works great for pumpkin pie)


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. 

2. Mix the flour, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg in a small bowl. 

3. In a medium size bowl whisk the eggs, pumpkin puree, and milk until light and creamy.

4. Combine the wet and dry ingredients and mix with a spoon. It is normal for the batter to look a little lumpy.

5. Pour the mixture into a pie crust and cook for 40 – 50 minutes or until the top is golden brown and spongy. 

6. Cool on a rack for 2 hours and then chill in the fridge for several hours. We love to cook this the night before we are going to eat it since it is best served cold with a nice big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
