Mark made a special request for a pumpkin pie. Nothing fancy...just a good 'ole pie! And since I am such a loving wife...I marched over to the commissary, on pay day (ridiculous!), and purchased the items for the pie.
Then...I mixed it all up...
Poured it in the pie shell. I cheated and bought a frozen one. The fantastic crust making gene must have skipped me.
And here is the finished product! I'd say pretty good for a first time pumpkin pie maker. And...the taste tester LOVED it...so much that he is refusing to share! I suggested he take it to work in the morning and that was an unacceptable suggestion. He will be personally consuming the pie over the next few days, and then I will be producing a second pie! :)
The second pumpkin project today was pumpkin spice cupcakes with...
Cinnamon Cream Cheese Icing! YUMMY!!!!!
These are absolutely ah-mazing, but unlike my husband...I WILL be sharing! Tomorrow is Bunco night at a friends house and this is my contribution. :) Happy Fall Baking!
