Notes

Keep pie frozen until about ½ hour (if defrosting on counter) or 2 hours (if defrosting in fridge) before serving – See what texture you like. Keep leftovers (IF ANY!!) in the freezer.

*If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice you can use a mixture of dried cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and cardamom.
