I’ve been a huge fan of apple pie or anything apple dessert related. So when I was introduced to pumpkin pie or pumpkin itself, I did not like it until three years ago. My friend was hosting a cooking class and she introduced me to vegan pumpkin pie with vegan whipped cream, thus began my love for pumpkin pie. If I could not get my hands on vegan pumpkin pie, I was happy with the regular pumpkin pie and it got to the point where I preferred the regular pumpkin pie.
Then recently, I asked on my Facebook page, what kind of videos did you want to see and one of my viewers suggested to add cream cheese to the pumpkin pie.
She was right, it did taste pretty AMAZING!
