We rated Pie #45 on a scale of 1 - 5:

If you like pecan pie, this is a good alternative to the traditional pecan pie.
 

52 Pies in 2012

For Thanksgiving we made a Pumpkin Pie, a Pecan Pie, an Apple Pear Pie plus a Chocolate Amaretto Cheesecake. 
 
First, the Pumpkin Pie. . .





































We rated Pie #44 Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie on a scale of 1 - 5:


Taste - 4.25
Crust - 4.00
Appearance - 4.00
Overall - 4.08
 
The next time we add pastry leaves to a pumpkin pie, we'll just add them to the outer crust as they didn't turn brown. Pretty good pie!
