Pumpkin Pie with Cream Topping

Still thinking about Thanksgiving and what to cook.  I could cook this pie any time and my husband would be a happy man!

These pictures are of the pie I made in the bakery.  I just rolled broken pecans into the crust and made a baked dough cut-out for the top.  If you want to make it the same way, but don’t want to bother with the top decoration, just use a few whole pecans on top.
