It is such a great day today! Today is pumpkin pie day. Nothing says fall like pumpkin and I love both. I love pumpkin everything so as soon as I saw that there was a day dedicated to delicious pumpkin pie I had to jump at the opportunity. This was my very first time making pumpkin pie and I did a really great job, if I don’t say so myself. They are so,so delicious, I would even say addicting.
The recipe is almost fool proof. I followed the directions on the can which called for:
15 oz can of pumpkin
12 oz of condensed/evaporated milk
1 3/4 tspn pumpkin pie spice
1 tspn cinnamon
Note: I made mini pumpkin pies because I highly dislike regular pie crust and the mini crusts came in graham cracker form. Perfect for me.
Once all the ingredients were incorporated, I filled the pie crusts and placed them on a cookie sheet to easily transport them to the oven. I baked them at 425 for 15 minutes, then I lowered the temp to 350 and baked them for an additional 40 minutes.
Here is the final product.
Verdict: I love pumpkin everything so it is really no surprise that I loved these. I was going to buy a pumpkin pie because, fun fact, my card expired and they never sent me a new one. However, this recipe is so easy and extremely cheap so I decided to put in the effort. Not only am I proud of myself for making these my first time, but it is also unbelievably delicious. If you love pumpkin like I do, try this recipe. Just be warned, you may eat all of it by yourself.
