Fall infuses an intense amount of pumpkin-treated recipes to keep the Thanksgiving and Halloween spirit alive, and this pumpkin-meringue pie is no exception. Taking a traditional summer-themed dessert like lemon-meringue pie and infusing fall spice results in this deep-dish pumpkin-meringue pie as the only option for a great dessert after a large family dinner.
For this recipe the pumpkin pie and crust are both homemade. The deep-dish crust is a phenomenal addition to the overall appeal of the pie. As for the meringue topping, make sure to add some nutty flavor to the topping with almond extract. This amalgamation between the nutty topping and the pumpkin bottom allows one's taste buds to explode in happiness.
