Gingered Pumpkin Pie with Candied Pepitas
In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Nicole Eiden and Marielle Dupré formed Windowsill Pies, a New Orleans–based pie company inspired by the city’s history and food culture. Their pies are currently made in a commercial kitchen and sold throughout the city, but a brick-and-mortar shop is next. This take on pumpkin pie has the smooth texture of the classic, but with extra layers of ginger-caramel flavor. Candied pepitas on top add extra flavor and crunch.
