No pie has deeper American roots than the omnipresent pumpkin pie, making it hard to imagine a Thanksgiving or Holiday table without it! Before it traveled to Europe then made its way back to become a quintessential American feature, pumpkins were cultivated and harvested at least 4,000 years ago in the Yucatan Peninsula. Using Teeccino Maya Chai makes an ultra-fitting flavor for this recipe and gives it a double dose of the sweet and spicy flavors we all know and love about a traditional pumpkin pie.
