After a great weekend getting Lost on the Praire at Papa’s Pumpkin Patch in Bismarck, pumpkins are all Tony can think about! This morning on KVLY-TV’s new morning show, North Dakota Today, Tony will share a recipe from Sarah’s grandmother for Sunny Mathison’s Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie. Easy to make and sooo delicious, we hope that this classic from the 1950′s will become a new favorite in your home.
The key to this recipe is the whipped cream that is folded into the pumpkin mixture, and we have a simple, delicious Real Whipped Cream recipe for you to use.
If you haven’t visited Papa’s Pumpkin Patch, we highly recommend it! We will be posting more details of our visit later this week, and have already added this to our list of favorite North Dakota activities.
We’d love to know: What are some of your favorite fall activities? Have you been to Papa’s Pumpkin Patch?

Tony’s Tip: Dip your knife in hot water between each cut for easy slicing.
