|Those little pumpkins are the one’s I roasted to make these pies. They’re perfectly sized.
And just so you know. Those pumpkins and wheat stalks are the extent of my fall decorating:)
*Just a quick note here. My pumpkin pie post was linked to, from the Gourmet Live blog! I’m flattered:)
I have a weakness. I love walking through Costco! I especially love walking through Costco around late Sept. early Oct. and spying the enormous Pumpkin Pies in the bakery dept. And they’re cheap. Even in Hawaii they are cheap. Like $5.95 for a huge pie. And my dear friends, the crust may not be spectacular, but the pie is lovely. My family can do some serious damage to a pumpkin pie in no time at all.
Another confession. I will now make all of my pumpkin stuff with real pumpkins. Next summer my entire garden is going to be planted in adorable Sugar Pie Pumpkins. I’m going to have a huge pumpkin patch. I love those perfectly sized pumpkins! I have bought a few of them the last few weeks, and my word, they make the best Pumpkin Pies. They even beat Costco’s! Add a homemade pie crust, and there is nothing better in the world. I’ve made 4 of these in 2 days. My family has only eaten 2, and the other two were given away. One to my perfect neighbor who has taken my garbage out for me the last 2 weeks. And I’ll bet he’s done it many more times without me noticing. He’s really nice. I hope you all have a neighbor like George. I will totally share a pie with perfect neighbors.
Each one of the lovely little Sugar Pie pumpkins pictured above makes 2- 9inch pumpkin pies. I follow the Libby Pumpkin Pie recipe, but substitute 1 cooked Sugar Pie pumpkin for a 29 oz. can of pumpkin. It works perfectly every time. So enjoy your pumpkin pie my friends. I keep telling myself I’m just practicing making these pies so they’ll be perfect by Thanksgiving Day. Who am I kidding? Let them eat pie! Every day!
