We were at the store the other day and my Levi begs for a pie pumpkin. “He’s sooo cuteĀ”. he said.

The pumpkin is so cute? Really? Could you resist? 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 good idea when the pumpkin was in the store then 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 pies from pumpkin in a can and Levi was a little surprised that pumpkins really make pie.

Sigh.

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.

Final product. We didn’t have cream of the iced or whipping variety. It was tragic. Levi still said “it is so beautiful, and I never use the word beautifulĀ.” It was tasty, although I think it needed some caramel. Wouldn’t that be the ultimate. Yum!
