I'm not sure how to add apple to a pumpkin pie as the moisture content would be substantially changed. Got a recipe?

Well at the moment it is just an idea. However, a great way of getting a fairly concentrated/dryish apple puree is just to bake a cooking apple on a fairly high heat until it goes pulpy. (I take out the core first - helps conduct more even heat throughout). Incidentally I find this apple puree is delightful on oatcakes/biscuits as a jam substitute e.g. to have with a cup of tea.

When using pumpkin, I also prefer it baked first to concentrate its flavour.

It is the only crust I will I use for pumpkin cheesecake. The same seasonings for the cookies can be found in the pumpkin.

Any extra leftover cookies, they travel with the cheesecake. Not on my list of favorite sweets.

My husband and I are going to our DF's home in Northern Arizona for Thanksgiving and I have been asked to make the pies.
Per DH's request one will be my Apple (now morphed to Caramel Apple) Crostata and then the hostess has requested Pumpkin.
As DH REALLY does not care for squash of any type, I haven't made a
Pumpkin Pie in EONS!
So this the recipe that I've chosen to use
https://www.verybestbaking.com/recip...s-pumpkin-pie/
the crust is already made and resting in the `fridge for me to bake tomorrow.
For the 3 hour car ride, I've purchased these from the Dollar Store

They're a buck, can you believe that?
I bought two to go and one for home.
Sometimes my cakes are too tall for my glass covered cake stand,
so this works well. Not to mention baked goods don't last very long in our house I made a Caramel Apple Crostata the other day for dessert after dinner.
WELL!
The pie came out of the oven about 3pm and was GONE when I woke up the next morning!

That was the very same recipe I used as a teenager making my first pie. It has to be the most famous one. Like I have always said, go to the experts. Chocolate? Go to Hershey's. And Libby's is the expert for the pumpkin pie. So why was the pie gone so fast? Looks like you are going to have to make a couple of more. One for your house (again!) and one to travel.

I like that travel cake carrier. I need to get down the square and fill up on dollar items. That carrier is definitely on my list.

What do you think about using a graham cracker of ginger snap crumb crust? If this heretical for pumpkin pie purists?
I think that would be awesome! I would definitely bake the crust for 10-15 minutes to toast it a bit.

My husband goes cuckoo for that version of Apple Pie and to tell the truth Addie, I don't make it in a set size, it's free-form and not as big as one baked in a dish.

A little off topic, but I also found this

I saw it at our local Dollar Tree last year but never picked it up and dontcha know, it was gone when I REALLY wanted it. So, I bought one the other day. DH likes to survey my booty when I come back from shopping, for food or otherwise, and he laughed his fool head off when he saw my Dollar Tree finds. "Only you would buy stuff like this." I beg to differ, I can't be alone.

One year I made two types of pumpkin pie. Standard and one that substitutes 2 tbs molasses and 1 1/2 cups of sour cream for the evap milk (2 pie recipe)......wasn't too bad. Recipes are from Joy of Cooking......1976 edition. I keep the book next to my desk.....along with many automotive manuals.

I have some favorite items from the dollar store. I will cut your hands off if you try to take them from me. I know a lot of folks who have more money than me, that are regular customers at that store.

My son has the original first edition of JOC book that his father left when he died. I and I don't know of anyone here that doesn't love JOC.
