Too much pie? Never.

A post shared by Costco (@costco) on

Costco’s pumpkin pie has been winning over hearts (and taste buds) since 1987. The big-box store's classic dessert is a foot in diameter, feeds 12 people and weighs four pounds (well,3.625 pounds to be precise).

According to Costco’s monthly magazine The Costco Connection, the recipe originated from the personal collection of Costco’s vice president of bakery operations. It’s whipped up in Costco bakeries, which recruit extra staff around Thanksgiving just to make the pumpkin pie. 

We’re gonna buy several and freeze a couple for later, because #leftovers and pumpkin-pie-stuffed French toast.
