Every year between halloween and christmas my Instagram feed is flooded with the most luscious looking pumpkin pies as people celebrate Thanksgiving.
And with winter finally here – I decided its time to take advantage of the chilly weather, stay home all day and bake a pumpkin pie for my little fam bam.
I’m so glad I did – this pumpkin pie is everything I dreamed of.
Just as I imagined the pumpkin filling is wonderfully luscious, silky, smooth and oh so decadent.
It’s scented with the most heavenly fragrance of maple, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger.
Oh and did I mention the pumpkin lends the most wonderful hue of orange to the pie…Gracie couldn’t believe how bright the filling was as we sliced through the fudgy pieces.
The crispy crunchy oaty pie crust is the perfect case to house the smooth filing.
It creates a lovely contrast of texture with every bite and the cinnamon and pecans strewn throughout the crust make perfect taste bud partners to the flavours of pumpkin, maple and spices.
If you’re looking to make the most of this beautiful winter weather, stay home and bake this pie too.
I promise, you’ll be delighted you did.
To make your own pumpkin pie simply…
