I am not good in baking or cooking. I am not afraid to try or experience things. Yesterday was obviously Thanksgiving Day in America, right? I tried to bake a pumpkin pie for the first time for a change. I search a recipe that is easy for me to follow. I found one and this is what I followed from this Website www.verybestbaking.com. I bought all the ingredients. There are two ingredients in the recipe that is very expensive. I do not understand it. These are the spices which are in a little container. I still bought it despite being expensive.
LIBBY’S® Famous Pumpkin Pie
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
2 large eggs
1 can (15 oz.) LIBBY’S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
1 unbaked 9-inch (4-cup volume) deep-dish pie shell
Whipped cream (optional)
MIX sugar, cinnamon, salt, ginger and cloves in small bowl. Beat eggs in large bowl. Stir in pumpkin and sugar-spice mixture. Gradually stir in evaporated milk.
POUR into pie shell.
BAKE in preheated 425° F oven for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350° F; bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 2 hours. Serve immediately or refrigerate. Top with whipped cream before serving.
As expected, my pumpkin pie is soft. The taste is not bad. How I wish that it is harder. My family still ate the pumpkin pie as dessert. I will try to bake apple pie next time. I know that my little girl loves apple. I hope it will turn out better than my pumpkin pie. I told you I am not a quitter.
How about you? What is your favorite pie to bake?
