Pumpkin pie is one of my most favorite American desserts - it's so comforting, so clearly connected to that most wonderful time of year, Thanksgiving, where no matter what race or religion, families and friends gather to celebrate how grateful they are for each other. What better way to start your day?

Ingredients

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

In large saucepan over high heat, combine the pumpkin puree, water, milk, raisins, salt, and pumpkin pie spice (alternative spices). Bring to a boil.

Add the oatmeal. Turn the heat down and cook according to your oatmeal instructions; mine usually takes about 15 minutes. Stir often.

Meanwhile, in a small cast iron skillet over medium heat, toast the pepitas until they're fragrant and a gentle golden brown, about 10 minutes.

Once the oatmeal is cooked (each grain should be tender), serve with honey or maple sugar on the side, pepitas to sprinkle on top, and cream if people like it more like porridge.
