Pumpkin Pie

Ah, pumpkin pie: the Quintessential fall dessert. Since I had so much pumpkin puree left over from Halloween, I decided to take a go at this classic. It now has become a household favorite. I think pumpkin is making a comeback 🙂

Here’s the tasty puree. Homemade is always so much better!

Here is the pie filling, before going into the pie shells.

If I had had time, I would of made the pie shells from scratch too, but alas, these are Safeway shells. They were pretty tasty, all things considered!

Into the oven they went for a really really long time. It said to cook them until a knife comes out clean, and that took about an hour and a half at 350…

When it was finally done, the pie became a household favorite. Poor Justin had to wait until family diner on Wednesday to try a piece!

It was a great go at my first pumpkin pie. I will definitely make this again in the future!
