Bernese Pumpkin Pie

Bernese Pumpkin Pie

Though there are some holiday things I am happy to leave over the pond—salads that involve marshmallows, Black Friday—pumpkin pie is not one of them. I have joyfully sought out canned pumpkin and plied my Swiss relatives with the smooth, spicy, creamy, buttery, crisp, delicious dessert (it really has everything, doesn’t it?).

And it turns out that the Bernese were already enjoying it centuries ago.

The supermarkets in Switzerland are currently filled with these packages of Pfeffer, or marinated game. Often you can get them for a very good price, and pie is an exceedingly easy way to take advantage, especially if you don't have time to make all the parts of the Wild plate. Decorate the lid with some forest animals and you have a Jäger's, or Hunter's pie.
