I have been requested to bring pie for Thanksgiving at my dad's. I can make a great pie, but sometimes Mrs. Smith's is better (at least she is consistent). I make an awesome from scratch (except the crust...something I may attempt this year) apple pie; but this year I have been asked to bring a pumpkin pie.
I cannot stand anything pumpkin (except the scent in candle form). None of my family like pumpkin pie with the exception of my brother; who doesn't speak to any of us that will be present. I have no idea why I am making a pumpkin pie. More than likely, I will make both pies so I know at least one will get eaten. I think I will go with this recipe for streusel pumpkin pie. Or, I might goes with this recipe for Paula Deen's pumpkin pie. Not sure which yet. All I know is, I will not be bringing home leftovers...ha!
