TWD: Caramel Pumpkin Pie

I’m just going to come right out and say it. I hate making pie- specifically pie crust. I have had issues with just about every step of making pie crust at one time or another (with the majority issues involving rolling it out). Give me a tart any day! I thrive on recipes that are flexible and forgiving and tart crusts have always been good to me!

This time, the pie gods were looking out for me! Everything, and I mean everything was working according to plan! I use the Cuisinart recipe for pie pastry and for a change- it just worked! Even rolling it out, I had plenty of overhang to trim and then fold back and for the first time ever, I had a real looking pie crust! (There were many pictures taken to commemorate the occasion).

The caramel pumpkin filling came out beautifully although I was surprised at how noticeable the dark rum flavor was. The pie was delicious (even without whipped cream). If we hosted Thanksgiving I would absolutely make this 🙂 Thanks to Janell of Mortensen Family Memoirs for this delicious (and successful!) selection!

  1. OMG! I love your “pi” plate. Where did you find that? I have an aunt who is a mathematics professor (and avid baker/cook) who would LOVE it!!

  2. I’m glad you had a successful pie crust and that you liked this pie. I always have issues with crusts. Anyway, thanks for baking along with me this week!

  3. Love pie but not making the crust! 🙂 Glad this turned out so well and that there were many photos taken to commemorate! That is something to celebrate!
