A 19th century Christmas feast would not have been complete without dessert. This is an 1843 recipe for pumpkin pie from Mrs. Ellis’s Housekeeping Made Easy. Unlike recipes we find in Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management, this recipe does not start with the measurements and the suggested cooking times. Nevertheless, if you would like to add some authentic 19th century cooking to your holiday feast, this one is worth a try.
