This foodie has been incredibly busy. I got a contract for my design business and I’m working on location, 9-5 during the weekdays and on the weekends I’ve been trying to catch up with everything else. I’ve been wanting to make this Pumpkin Pie for over 6 weeks now! I was so buried in work I even missed Halloween Movie night at Helga’s. So, after a crazy weekend with no running water during the day (renovations at home) I came home to bake! I was so happy to be able to get around the kitchen as I am used to.
I have to confess, last year I baked a Pumpkin Pie, but first I forgot to add the eggs to the filling and then, after it was baked, it cracked! I was devastated… This time I searched all around and found this recipe by Martha Stewart. Now, after reading it I changed the amount of ginger, cinnamon and cloves… and added a bit of pumpkin pie spice. Seems a bit redundant, but trust me is worth it.
Even though the pie was cracked, there was nothing but crumbs of that one! One last thing: My mom’s stove is propane (not electric). You can guess what happened. Propane ran out by the end of the baking and the crust came out unbaked! It’s an honest mistake, but make sure you do try it. It is pure (half baked) goodness!
