PUMPKIN PIE for Thanksgiving



Pumpkin pie is a must to complete your family feast on Thanksgiving Day. Not only pumpkin pie, but also apple pie and cranberry pie may be used. I probably don’t have to tell you this as it may many of the viewer know it already. But I just wanted to add it for those few who don’t know yet.

Anyway, besides greeting every one of you who celebrate thanksgiving I would like to share this homemade recipe where you can find very easy on the seal of pure pumpkin pie can. Do I like pumpkin pie? Not really, not because the taste is not delicious but that because I am not a pie person. I just love to make them and serve to my husband and his family on this special day.

Join me with this recipe if you may;

11/2 cups sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
½ tsp ground cloves
4 large eggs
1 can (29 oz.) 100% pure pumpkin
2 cans (12 fl. Oz each) evaporated milk
2 unbaked 9-inch deep-dish pie shells ( I used Pillsbury pie crusts)

MIX sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger and cloves in small bowl. Beat eggs in large bowl. Stir in pumpkin and sugar spice mixture. Gradually stir in evaporated milk.

POUR into pie shells. (As I used pie crust so I unrolled the pie crust in small pie bowl. Press firmly against side and bottom. Pour mixture in and bake).

BAKE in preheated 425F. oven for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350F; bake 40 – 50 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 2 hours. Serve immediately or refrigerate.

When I bake in purpose of serving people for a special day, it is such a pleasure for me if I see the pie disappears immediately.

Everyone who celebrates thanksgiving I would like to wish you HAVE A WONDERFUL THANKSGIVING!

bandeng itu inggrisnya milkfish. disana susah carinya ya? disini cukup gampang, skrg ada yg frozen ada yg fresh frozen bisa dibersihin. laki gue paling doyan bandeng jd gue suka beli. kalo gak ada bandeng, pake ikan yg lain aja yg dagingnya cukup keras. fillet jg bisa.
