Rachel Recommends – Give This Recipe A Try For Twist On Traditional Pumpkin Pie

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It’s not pumpkin pie.  Something a little sweeter, and better, in my festive holiday opinion!  With tasty ingredients like pumpkin, whipped cream, cream cheese, vanilla pudding, cinnamon and more, this one is a crowd pleaser! Thanks to my sweet sister-in-law, Stephanie Harris, this yum yum has become my longtime favorite pleasing pumpkin decadent dessert.  I share this every year.  It’s called Pumpkin Supreme and it’s a family favorite in Stephanie’s Texas family as this sweet treat has been handed down through her family’s generations.  I love that she lets me share it every year.  Different from pumpkin pie with a sweeter and more decadent twist, this stuff is delish!  I have shown the recipe several times through the years in my Your Life Arizona morning show segments.

Shamrock Farms once hired me to make recipes in my own kitchen.  With both media events, this recipe was the star of the show!
