I am low on ingredients today and haven’t been able to make anything interesting. However, I did find a good looking recipe in one of my old Taste of Home Halloween supplements. This recipe is all over the Internet so I guess it’s been around for a long time. I never noticed it until now. The picture in Taste of Home makes it look very good — much better than it sounds. It appears to be a 13×9 inch pumpkin pie with a streusel topping. Then again, the streusel topping probably tastes like cake mix, so if that’s not your thing you’ll want to skip this.
