TERRE HAUTE — I love pumpkin pie; this pie recipe is different. I tried this a few years ago. With the holidays behind us, why not try something new to save for your next party or holiday?

Everyone will ask how and what is different in their favorite pie. I’ve made praline candy, cookies and cake. So why not a pie?
