I will definitely be using butter instead of the coconut oil for the pie crust.
I won't be the only one at the gathering who is primal/paleo this year! The neice who is bringing her sister and 4 kids is cooking primal because her son has severe acne - and primal eating has cleared it up! So, she is making primal pumpkin pie. We have another neice who is allergic to nuts though - so we have to be sure she knows which foods contain nuts. We can't cook with peanuts at all cuz she can't even be in the house with peanuts.
