I thought maybe we could share some Holiday Recipes that we have tried that we feel are worth sharing with others.  I found a great pie recipe for Thanksgiving that I would like to share with you all.  
It's called:  (Now this picture they used small marshmallows on top, I didn't).  Everyone loved it and wants me to make it for Christmas too.

  • 2  teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1  teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4  teaspoon salt
  •   Crust
  • 1  Pillsbury® Pet-Ritz® Frozen Deep Dish Pie Crust
