This is the perfect pumpkin pie. Its got a great amount of fall spices, the perfect flavor, great texture, its delicious and extra easy to make!
Last week I got together with 4 other blogger friends and we each made a few dishes to make up a full Thanksgiving dinner. There are a certain parts of a Thanksgiving dinner that can’t be forgotten, of course the turkey first, mashed potatoes and gravy and the pies. If we’re being honest, which we always are; I’ve never been a huge “pie person”. I’m happy to eat a few slices on Thanksgiving, and any time pie is offered to me really, but if given the choice I think I would chose cake or brownies or cookies over pie most of the time. But I whipped up this pumpkin pie for our Blogger Thanksgiving last week and it was perfect. It may be the best pumpkin pie I’ve ever had, if that’s not claiming too much. This pumpkin pie has the perfect amount of fall pumpkinny spices, along with just the right texture for pumpkin pie, and I don’t like too much crust so my store bought crust was perfect – but if you’re good at making pie crusts, then feel free to make your own. Now, I like my pumpkin pie topped with a big pile of whipped cream, or scoop of vanilla ice cream. So when I ate my slice I added a big scoop of homemade whipped cream to the top of it, and I may have added more half way through when I’d eaten the first bit already.
