If made right, I might just say that Pumpkin Pie is one my favorites.
I've had a lot of really good pumpkin pies and some really bad pumpkin pies.... in fact, the worst dessert I've ever had and literally had to choke down, just happened to be a pumpkin pie.
I'd have to say that my Mom makes the best pie. The best.
I'd like to think that one day I'll make them as good as her. I'd like to think that I'm making my way there.
Anyways, I don't know why, but I've been craving pumpkin pie for a week or two now. So today I decided to make some. Finally.
If you'd like my recipe, here it is....
PUMPKIN PIE (2 pies)
Make your pie crust. Here's a link to my earlier blog posting on how to make mine. (though, don't poke holes in your crust and don't bake it until after the filling is in)
In a bowl, combine
2 1/2 c. half and half
28 oz. can of pure pumpkin
1 Tbsp. & 1 tsp. corn starch
1 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. all spice
1/4 tsp. ginget
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (optional)
Beat with a hand mixer. Pour into your prepared pie crusts and sprinkle with some nutmeg.
Bake at 350F for 1 hour.
Cover with whipped cream before serving. Mmmmm.
