Pumpkin Pie

Pirate wanted a Pumpkin Pie. I can't eat it, so I looked for a recipe that would make a small one. He doesn't need the extra calories. To my Surprise I found the following one.

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

I had a Keebler 'Nilla Cookie crust on hand. So I used that. I also totaled the amount of herbs and used McCormick's Pie Herb Mixture instead of individual amounts of each. The amount of filling was PERFECT for the size of the pie pan. Most recipes for Pumpkin Pie gives you enough filling for a deep dish pie. This pie is a perfect size for someone who lives alone or with one other person.

And it is so easy!

I especially like the topping ideas on the right of the recipe.

I ran across a version on Serious Eat last week that I've been thinking of test-driving. It blind-bakes the crust for a short time, and substitutes cream cheese for the canned milk. Both adjustments are there to eliminate any chance of the crust being soggy. Not a big issue with my pies, but I at least have an excuse for another pumpkin pie this time of year.

Since my SIL is usually the pie baker for Thanksgiving, I might go ahead and try this a week or two later and run half over to their house for their opinion. I usually make a pumpkin pie when we're visiting the kids at Christmas and I'd like to make this "new and improved" version if it really is improved.

That look like an interesting option. I'm not a pumpkin pie fan but that one might do.


What do you think about using a graham cracker of ginger snap crumb crust? If this heretical for pumpkin pie purists?

If it is, then let them make their own pie.

Ginger snap crust goes great with pumpkin pie filling. I've made it this way a number of times.

I find pumpkin goes well with apple puree so, unless needing to stick to a substitute traditional format, I would have experimented with that combination.
