Not a real rabbit pie, of course. Boyfriend used to ask "is everything an art project?". Well, yeah, everything sort of is, isn't that the point? This is one of the pumpkin pies we brought to dinner, the other went home in stomachs. I infused the whipped cream with fresh rosemary, which actually tasted quite good. The pumpkins I used were from our Farmer's Market, carefully chosen; you have to check the stems to be sure they haven't been harvested prematurely. Look for a shrunken dried stem, anything slightly green or moist or moldy won't keep and won't have maximum flavor. For the crust I used fresh organic butter and organic leaf lard from a pig whose name was "lefty". The flour is white spelt.
