Bad news: We might be in for a pumpkin pie shortage this holiday season, according to the Associated Press. Thanks to a very wet June, the Midwest’s pumpkin crop rotted. That means manufacturers won't be able to produce as much filling as usual. Obviously, you have two options: Start frantically hoarding cans of pumpkin, or skip the pumpkin pie this year and plan to eat these delicious alternatives.
1. Sweet-Potato Meringue Pie
This beautiful, crunchy-creamy pie looks like a pumpkin pie, but the filling is actually made with sweet potato.
2. Acorn Squash and Pear Pie
This deep dish pie is made with gingery acorn squash puree and cinnamon-sugar-sprinkled pear slices.
