“I make pumpkin, squash or carrot pies special by adding a teaspoon or so of maple flavoring. I also add it to whipped topping and baked apples,” notes Eleanore Rhoades of Wooster, Ohio. “I always get compliments.”
Children love this pie—marshmallows make the filling light and fluffy. It's a quick and easy recipe that I've shared many times over the years. Since it doesn't need to bake, this pie comes in handy at Thanksgiving and Christmas when your oven is in demand. —Phyllis Renfro, White Bear Lake, Minnesota
