My Thanksgiving menu this October (and November, when my American friends visit) is getting ever more popular. I struck a deal with the homemade winemakers - and yes, it involved brandy in a gluten-free pumpkin pie. No matter what your tastes are, I've left you plenty of wiggle room to personalize your own pumpkin pie this season. If there's one pumpkin pie I'm proud of, it's this bad boy.

If you love pecan pie, I think you'll find my recipe a keeper.
