I've been designated as the dessert maker @ work for potlucks. Two years ago, I made pies for our Thanksgiving lunch. I made one pumpkin, and one apple. The apple was amazing.
The pumpkin pie looked a little odd. I thought I'd better try it first, I didn't want anyone else to try it if it was bad. Turns out, I used the recipe off a can of pumpkin pie filling, when all I used was pure pumpkin. It was awful!
I'm so glad I tried it first!
