Pumpkin pie, a lasting legacy of Pilgrim feasts, continues to serve as the much-anticipated conclusion to many traditional holiday meals. Since 1929, Libby's Pumpkin has been indelibly linked with America's heritage and classic baking traditions. Today this passion continues, with more than 50 million pies served each year. And ever since Libby's Famous Pumpkin Pie recipe first appeared on its labels in 1950, American bakers have been able to create consistently superior pies more easily.
Canned pumpkin has remained a favorite due to its convenience, quality, nutrition and, of course, great taste. With pumpkin on the ingredient list, the distinctive orange color, creamy texture, moistness and mellow taste can enhance any number of dishes. Contemporary cooks have discovered pumpkin's versatility and flair, so it now stars in more than pies. Pumpkin adapts to a variety of flavorings and spices, giving terrific taste to breads, soups and many delicious desserts.
Beloved by cooks across the land and still a family tradition today, few can claim Libby's Pumpkin's 75 years of heritage, nutrition and versatility. Visit www.VeryBestBaking.com for more delectable recipes from sweet to savory, featuring an American original.
