Pumpkin Pie Filling

pumpkin pie filling


Save money on pumpkin pie filling by using a can scraper or rubber spatula to remove all of it from the can. 

When pouring the filling in the pie crust, do it while the pie pans are set on the open oven shelves so that you can fill them to the brim without spillage.
