Pumpkin Pie


Did I already tell you I’m a “trying (very) hard novice baker” into baking now? 

I did? Well, so sorry for repeating myself…

It’s just that I get a natural (or is it sugar-induced?) high everytime something like this comes out of my oven…

Yes, it’s freshly baked pumpkin pie!  😎

This is actually a long-overdue Halloween “kitchen project” that I only had the guts to do quite recently.  Since my first attempt wasn’t as successful (was still using a turbo broiler then to bake – silly me!), I kept on postponing my “second go” lest the results disappoint yet again (yeah, call me a certified baking coward 😉 ).

It’s a good thing I gave it another shot (and with a “proper” oven this time!) or I never would have the satisfaction of seeing and tasting this “fairly easy-to-make” (look who’s talking now! hahaha! 😆 ) dessert. 

This is best served refrigerated with a dollop of whipped cream on top.  Here, have a slice!

PS You can find the recipe I used here.  And don’t you worry if you can’t find the specific brand of milk mentioned, I used another brand and it turned out just as well.  Also, instead of a ready crust, I used a store-bought “do-it-yourself” one from Betty Crocker. 😉

  1. Uy! Kakaiba ‘to a! (Sa akin lang naman.) Kuya Keith? Anong hatol? Itsura pa lang ubos na e. “Spirito” na lang ata nakikita ko… 😀

    Naku, Twinx, di masyado “type” ni Keith ito dahil di daw appetizing yung kulay for him… Kami lang ng mga bata ang may gusto kaya okay na rin. 😉

    Hon, you know how I feel about this… taste was okay but the color does not really appeal to me that much… plus the thought that I am eating a pumpkin (different from a kalabasa, ha).

    Twinkie, ang hatol eh, okay na dessert paminsan-minsan.

    Naku, Hon, you’d have to “endure” at least one more round of this dessert since may isa pa akong lata ng canned pumpkin – hehehe 🙂

  6. I am impressed Pinky! You not only have grown quite a following through this food blog of yours, you also have become quite a food photographer! Kudos to you! I must study food styling already so that you can consider me in your next cookbook venture, hehe 🙂

    Wow, palakpak-tenga naman ako with all your kind words… thanks mucho, sis! 😀 Joint venture with MLH? Baka di kayanin ng powers ko – to the highest level na kaya yan – hahaha! 😆
