You’ve heard of a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving dessert, but what about a Pumpion pie? It combines two incredible flavors, pumpkin and apples, for a very nostalgic dessert. The recipe is actually 350 years old and this recipe comes from a cookbook from the 1670s.

Max Miller combined his love of history and cooking in videos that share vintage recipes. For Thanksgiving, he decided to make a Pumpion pie and share the recipe with his followers. The original recipe is quite odd so Max decided to translate it into a modern recipe that anyone can make.

Set the oven to 425 degrees F. Have your crust ready on the side. If you have a pie pumpkin, you will have to peel it, remove the stem and seeds, and cut it into quarters. Slice the pieces into thin slices and then do the same with apples. Then put about two tablespoons of butter into a frying pan on medium heat.

In another bowl, mix the herbs into the beaten eggs and dip the pumpkin slices in the mixture. Then fry the pieces in the frying pan until the pumpkin softens, for about 10 minutes. Next, line the bottom of your crust with the apples.
