We’ve talked about the virtues of pumpkin before: It’s full of flavor, nutrition, and, of course, there’s the fact that it’s basically fall’s mascot. Whether you use your big orange squash as a source of delicious seeds; the base ingredient for making fries, hummus, or bread; or just to carve it into an absurd Trumpkin, the uses for pumpkin are pretty much infinite.

And yet, there’s one type of pumpkin product that’s more popular—and more frequently searched on Google—than all the others: Pumpkin pie. With its uniquely nutty-spicy-sweet flavor, pie will always be the best sweet pumpkin treat (sorry, Starbucks lattes). That’s why I asked a pro, Guily Booth, award-winning executive chef of Miami’s B Bar Tapas & Grill, exactly how she cooks up a perfect pumpkin pie. Booth gave me a healthy and tasty rendition that won’t fail to please—and if by chance you’re looking for something a little different (because options are never a bad thing) just click through the five other excellent options we found, below.
