Thank you to Dixie for sponsoring this Thanksgiving discussion. All opinions expressed are my own.
Thanksgiving season is here! It’s a time to enjoy the 4 F’s: Food, Family, Friendship and Football! It’s also time to stock up on all the Dixie plates, bowls, cups and napkins we will use throughout the festivities.
This Thanksgiving, Dixie invites everyone to make and share Thanksgiving Promises. Each promise is a reminder of what is truly important about the holiday. I made my Thanksgiving Promise to Dixie this year, and I plan to enjoy every moment sticking to it. Everyone who shares a Dixie Thanksgiving Promise on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest will receive an exclusive Dixie coupon.

As promised in the title of this blog post, I have an easy pumpkin pie recipe to share with you. This Signature Pumpkin Pie with Vanilla Whipped Cream takes just 5 minutes to prep and 55 minutes to bake.

in preheated 425°F oven 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F.
40 minutes longer or until knife inserted 1 inch from crust comes out clean. Cool completely on wire rack. Serve with Vanilla Whipped Cream.
Makes 8 servings.
