I still had leftover pumpkin puree in my fridge from when I bought that whole pumpkin! So I decided to make some of my friends’ favorite–pumpkin pie and bring it up to their room for when we watched American Horror Story.
This was a caramel pumpkin pie, in which you brown some sugar in a saucepan to make your own caramel which is a fun process. As per usual, I made my own pie crust, a recipe for which is in the pie recipe link. Simply put, I do not use store-bought!
I will say that I was way too lazy to go the 3 blocks to Whole Foods to get heavy cream, so I just went to Fo Bo Gro across the street and used whipped cream as a substitution instead (whoops) …and to garnish with! It seemed to have worked just as well as regular liquid cream.
Take a look at the results:
My friends really enjoyed the pumpkin pie, and my roommate said it was the best she’s ever had. Well, gee, thanks!
