I've never been a big pumpkin pie fan. It's just not my thing.
Others in my family enjoy it and my mom would make a pumpkin pie every year for Thanksgiving dessert.
But knowing that all of us were not fans of the pumpkin, she would always make another type of pie -- pecan, mincemeat and a wonderful concoction called "Mystery Pie."
It gets it's name because you really can't identify what the ingredients are -- hence the mystery.
But it's fairly simple and pretty much you have everything at hand -- except maybe for the whipped topping.
So if you're looking for something different to take to Thanksgiving dinner, give this one a shot. It's quick, it's easy, you don't have to make a crust, and it's sure to be a hit.
