Layered pumpkin pie
I am trying to locate a specific recipe from the Denver junior league cookbook: Colorado Cache
I actually own this cookbook, but having moved in August it must be buried in the boxes that occupy one entire bay of my garage - stacked to the ceiling! I have tried to search those that are easily accessible, but no luck...and Thanksgiving is NEXT week! If anyone has the recipe I would be so very grateful! It is absolutely the best I have every tasted!
I have that cookbook, but my version (purchased in the early 1990s in Denver) doesn't have that particular recipe. Mine has a 1978 copyright. I'm wondering if there is a later version? Sorry I can't help.
I still don't see it in my cookbook. I read through all of the desserts, even looking to see if there was a variation on one that included pumpkin. The Junior League of Denver has published five cookbooks. Are you sure it wasn't in Creme de Colorado? I don't have that one, unfortunately.
maybe my friend adapted one of their cheesecake recipes...if I can find my OLD address book I may try to track her down...haven't talked to her in over 10 years; we lost track...
oh well, guess that explains why I couldn't find any mention of it on the internet...
It was really, really good! Best I've ever had :(
Thank you for looking for me!
Found the recipe I have been so desperately searching for...and hope others will find it as incredible as I did!
