Do you ever wonder who "Grandma Tobias" is when you bite into a delicious piece of our pie with her namesake? She's Norman Mayne's grandmother (and Calvin Mayne's great-grandmother) and she certainly did love to make pies. Her family has fond memories of Grandma Tobias rolling out dough in her kitchen filled with the aroma of pies baking. Years ago, when we needed a name for our pumpkin pies, we knew "Grandma Tobias" would be a fitting tribute.

There's something so comforting about a slice of good pumpkin pie. Perhaps it's the memories that it evokes of special family members and their treasured recipes? Or, maybe it's the great care that you can taste when you know a pie is baked from scratch?

We often hear that people love our Grandma Tobias Pumpkin Pie so much because it tastes homemade. The truth is that it is homemade, and we don't skip a beat. We've resisted the temptation to take shortcuts in the baking process that may make things easier for us when making so many pies at once.

Central Bakery's Greg Tyzzer notes that a great pumpkin pie not only should taste rich yet creamy, but it should look good, too. We've gone to great lengths to test and slightly tweak our recipe to achieve a smooth and slightly glossy top with a golden brown crust that's buttery and flaky.

No matter what Thanksgiving looks like for you, we hope that you find comfort in our Grandma Tobias Pumpkin Pie.

Naturally, our Grandma Tobias Pumpkin Pie is the frontrunner this time of year but Grandma Tobias Pecan Pie also is a popular favorite and it's easy to taste why. We use the same buttery, flaky crust and bake with our traditional pecan pie filling that's gooey, sweet, and chock-full of pecans.

Your pumpkin pie is incredible. It is better than home made.

We are so glad you like it. It was Grandma Tobias's family recipe using an all-butter crust.
