"This was one of several pies I made for Thanksgiving. It went so fast I didn't even get to try it! But everyone else gave it rave reviews!"

"This is a very refreshing pie but it certainly doesn't tate like cheesecake. (maybe more cream cheese? It's pretty much pumkin. The crust is a WONDERFUL change!"

"Oxtuckian, you take a paper doile and place it over the sour cream. Sprinkle cinnamon over the top of the doile and then blow off the excess cinnamon. Remove the doile and you'll have the design of the doile. The doile acts as a stencil. On a pie or cake with a darker surface, sprinkle the doile with powdered sugar for a lovely white lace effect. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
