Quick shout-out to the Calvary Preschool Peeps who hired me to get everyone “Thinking Outside the Lunchbox” last night. I enjoyed our time together!
Pumpkin Pie is not my favorite. In my opinion, if I’m being perfectly honest, pumpkin pie is just, well, OK. In the opinion of my family and all the guests at the pumpkin palooza party, however, this recipe for pumpkin pie is the bomb. I seriously saw a few kids licking their plates clean (possibly adults were doing it around the corner or something.)
So, even though I didn’t really dig in to this, chances are you will. 🙂
Old Fashioned Pumpkin Pie
Ingredients: 2 cups pumpkin, 1 1/2 cup heavy cream or 1 12 oz. can of evaporated milk, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/3 cup white sugar, 1/2 tsp. salt, 2 eggs plus the yolk of a third egg, 2 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. ginger, 1/4 tsp: cardamon, cloves, nutmeg, 1/2 tsp. lemon zest, pie crust (and yes, I used a frozen crust.)
Directions: mix, pour into pie crust and bake at 425 for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 and bake for another 50 minutes. Serve with homemade whipped cream for extra yum factor!
Deep Thoughts: I intentionally chose a recipe with kind of a long list of ingredients. I figured that by adding a little more personality I might like this dessert a bit more. It didn’t work–but like I said, everybody else loved it so I think I’m the exception here. Just don’t know what it is about pumpkin pie…
