Jan’s Brown Butter Pumpkin Pie
Adapted from SJ Mercury News – originally from Emily and Melissa Elsen, “The Four & Twenty Blackbirds Pie Book”
Jan usually makes the desserts at our Sunday meals. Sometimes these desserts are within the theme of the meal. Other times they are just whatever strikes her fancy on the day. Either way, she will find a recipe that is close to what she wants and then she will adapt it “on the fly.”
