In the pie world, it’s not just about looks but also taste! My last pie had the “looks” but not the “taste”.
I haven’t made a from-scratch pumpkin pie in years. So, I thought it would be good to do a trial-run before Thanksgiving. This wasn’t a big production because, I used canned pumpkin. I also decided to just use the recipe on the can.
Everything was looking fine. My crust turned out well and I even made a cute little star to go on top 😊
My husband was so excited to have some fresh pie but was distressed that I didn’t have any whipped topping in the house. So, he ran to the store while the pie was cooling. When he returned, I made homemade whipped topping and then we dug in.
But, it was an udder failure! Not moist and creamy like the pumpkin pies I’m used to. Going over and over the recipe making sure I had followed the directions correctly, I started comparing recipes. Most recipes I found had more liquid and more eggs.
So, we promptly ate just a few bites of the piece we cut and then threw the rest away!! And, then we ate whipped topping. 😊
New Pumpkin Pie coming up! But, here is the Whipped Topping Recipe.
