My First Pumpkin Pie

For 2017’s Thanksgiving I really wanted to make this. I had never made pumpkin pie and it seemed like it could be fun to try. Especially since I have such good luck with this cookbook and she made it sound so good. And that is all from someone who is indifferent to pumpkin pie. But then the Chiplet was born and making a pie wasn’t really something I was thinking of at that point. Especially when we ended up having a quiet Thanksgiving with only 3 of us eating it. So fast forward to this year. I liked that most of the parts could be done ahead and in sections. Also, the Fudgelet really wanted to try different traditional foods so I went full traditional.

Cherry Pie

In case you wanted extra pie, I bring to you cherry pie. I made this for my Aunt L who came to visit Seattle (and us) for the first time ever. She came in the Fall around her birthday, so I wanted to make her favorite dessert. Of course it was something I had never made before, and it is an area I struggle with: pie! Thankfully, I was able to make something that was acceptable, and I think even delicious.

Extra Pie Crust Chocolate Pinwheels

What kind of title is that, you say? Well, often, when you make pie crusts, you have extra dough. There are different things you could do with it. Sometimes I have decorated the edges. I have also tried to bake the dough as-is, since people say it can be tasty. That’s all fine, but I decided I wanted a way to make it with chocolate and have a bonus treat. So, bonus treats for all of us because I am sharing what I did.
