Nick & Daddy Pumpkin Pie


(Representative Stephen Bloom (PA-199th) and Nick Bloom)

"My husband Stephen and our son Nick developed this recipe together in the early 90's when Nick was just a little boy. The two of them made this for our Thanksgiving dinner that year, and our children have made it every year since for Thanksgiving. It doesn't matter where we have dinner, the answer to the question, "What would you like to bring?” is always the same... pumpkin pie!”
– Sharon Bloom
