Making Pumpkin Pie 101

I love pumpkin pie!

First you have to make your dough or you can buy it. I make it myself. Then you roll it out and lay it in your pie pan. Then you make whatever decorative edge you want.

You mix your dry ingredients together in a small bowl. In a larger bowl you beat the eggs. Then you add and stir in your pumpkin and dry ingredient. Then you add your evaporated milk.

After you're done mixing everything then you pour it into your uncooked pie shell.
You put your pie in the oven put the timer on and wait for your pie to be done. You have to test it off the center and if the knife is clean then it's cooked. You have to let it rest and firm up for at least 2 hours before you eat it. This is what it looked like.


If I can I'll show you a picture of the turkey I cooked. I have to spend some time at my inlaws so I don't know if I'll have time to show you. I always split time on the holidays. Meaning I spend half the time at my parents and the other half at my inlaws the same day. Sometimes it is tiring but we have to be fair and spend equal amount of time at both places you know.

Hi Jesse I always have a hard time making my own dough but this time it went well and it tasted awesome. What I always love about pies is the crust. In my opinion that's the best part but that's only me lol.

Thank you for giving me some awards. I'm very grateful. I'm going to check them out as soon as I am finished replying to comments.
