This is the time of year where life seems to whizz right by. Between soccer, scouts, school and numbers other activities, I am barely keeping my head afloat. We survived Halloween and heading full force into Thanksgiving. Apparently I’m hosting the meal this year, so I better get to work!

I am definitely of the opinion that everything tastes better with chocolate. So it should taste doubly better (is that a word?) if you double the chocolate, right? Last week I shared my Raspberry Chocolate Galette, with the chocolate pie crust. Today I am using that same pie crust for my Double Chocolate Pumpkin Pie.

Pumpkin pie is a HUGE family favorite in my house. One pie barely lasts 24 hours with my crew. The minute pumpkin is in season, we start noshing on pumpkin pie. Who can wait for Thanksgiving to indulge?

So why not make this holiday classic even better and bake it in a chocolate pie crust?

Oh, it was better. But I went an extra step and added chocolate swirls into the pumpkin pie. Oh, yeah, MUCH better.

Oops – was there a bite missing?

For those of you with a  real chocolate hankering, feel free to drizzle some chocolate ganache over your pie. We prefer a sprinkling of pomegranate on top our pie. This crust works well as a galette, a traditional pie crust, or even as a tart crust.

My husband is still a classic pumpkin pie enthusiast, not so much a chocolate fan. So I will make him a plain pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. But the rest of us will be thoroughly enjoying this Double Chocolate Pumpkin Pie!
