Recipe: Camino Special Pumpkin Pie

Halloween’s right around the corner, and although the celebrations in Spain are closely related to the religious holiday on All Saints Day – who doesn’t love the iconic Halloween tradition Pumpkin Pie? If you are travelling on the Camino de Santiago in late October or early November, you will get to witness Halloween on the Camino.

This dish, now symbolic to Halloween was originally invented by the Northeastern Native American tribes. The tribes brought Pumpkins as gifts for their settlers, eventually 50 years later the Pumpkin Pie came into existence on Thanksgiving.

This delicious yet easy recipe of a Pumpkin Pie is a children’s favorite. Be sure to grab some extra pumpkins and let your creativity run wild with carving them!
