We have updated the photo and recipe for this pumpkin pie post which first appeared in 2013 (though we left many original photos as well). This recipe is amazing and delicious! We want to bring it back to your attention so you can add it to your fall line-up. It’s easy to make with fantastic results…
We were at the store the other day and my Levi begs for a pie pumpkin to make pumpkin pie. “He’s sooo cute”. he said. The pumpkin is so cute? Really? Could youresist? Well, neither could I. We took the pumpkin home and he promptly did this with a Sharpie…
That little pumpkin sat on my counter for a while. Okay, days and days. Finally, I felt guilty about putting off making the pie I had promised Levi. It seems like such a better idea when the pumpkin was in the store than when it was on my counter.
My brother (#5 of the 10 of us) was over for lunch. It was his birthday. Seemed like the right occasion to make a pie. Although, any day is an occasion for dessert in our house.
That poor pumpkin became puree. Yippee! Levi kept on asking to push the buttons on the blender. What is that about? It never got old. Huh?
I usually make my pumpkin pie from pumpkin in a can and Levi was a little surprised that pumpkins really make pie.
But, he is a happy boy. And he brushes his teeth…most of the time…
Cracking eggs. Another of those tasks he loves… I don’t understand? Eggs, pumpkins and pie crusts. Christmas presents? Here’s the good part. Stick some gingersnaps and nuts in the blender. Pulverize it.
Now, the key to the topping. You have to let the pie bake until it is fairly set and THEN put on the crumbles. Finish the baking with the crumbles on top. They will get nice and brown.
