Joy by the slice
It’s the fall flavour we look forward to. And for some, the very cornerstone of Thanksgiving. The scrumptious pumpkin pie. Our version starts with a buttery homemade crust lavishly filled with pure pumpkin, Hewitt's 18% Cream, Gay Lea Sour Cream, and the perfect amount of spice. Serve with Gay Lea Coconut or Traditional Whipped Cream. Then be prepared to share the recipe.

Go coconuts for sweet potatoes
This fragrant side is a lovely complement to roast.
