There’s nothing quite like a warm slice of pumpkin pie on a crisp fall day. And lucky for us, we’ve found the ultimate recipe for the perfect pumpkin pie – courtesy of the talented folks at Edmonds.
To start, preheat your oven to 180C. Then, in a large bowl, mix together 1 can of pumpkin puree, 3 eggs, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup of white sugar, 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger, 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1 1/2 cups of evaporated milk.
Once the mixture is thoroughly combined, pour it into a pie crust and bake for 15 minutes. Then, reduce the oven temperature to 160C and bake for an additional 45 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center of the pie comes out clean.
While you wait for the pie to bake, take a moment to enjoy the beautiful fall foliage outside. And hey, since you’re already feeling festive, why not whip up a batch of delicious apple pie to enjoy alongside your pumpkin pie?
For the apple pie, start by preheating your oven to 190C. Then, peel and slice 6 cups of Granny Smith apples and place them in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together 3/4 cup of sugar, 2 tablespoons of flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Pour this mixture over the sliced apples and toss until the apples are evenly coated.
Next, roll out a pie crust and transfer it to a 9-inch pie dish. Pour the apple mixture into the crust and dot with 2 tablespoons of butter. Cover the pie with a second pie crust and crimp the edges to seal. Cut a few slits in the top of the crust to allow steam to escape, then bake for 50-60 minutes, or until golden brown.
And there you have it – the perfect pair of pies to enjoy on a cozy fall afternoon. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream and a hot cup of coffee for the ultimate comfort food experience.
As always, be sure to stop by your local farmers market to pick up the freshest ingredients possible. And don’t forget to share your pies with friends and loved ones – there’s nothing better than spreading joy through a delicious homemade dessert.
