Pumpkin Pie for days

A very warm hello and good afternoon to you all!

As some of you will know, it was Thanksgiving yesterday.

My Apologies for my absence, chaos seems to follow me recently.

As a british person, Thanksgiving fascinated me. The parades, the Thanksgiving meals, the history, friends and family coming together, the ways that people express what they are thankful for, it’s an American tradition that I’ve taken great interest in but never experienced.

I saw alot of posts of recipes and pictures, and it made my mouth water.

As some of you may of guessed, I love my food, and am always up for trying something new.

Last night I made a pumpkin pie. A dish that is apparently popular to Thanksgiving.

I followed a recipe online, and google pictures, as although it is a simple recipe to follow, I needed to check that the consistency and the outcome was correct.

I didn’t have a pie dish so I used 2 smaller cake tins… I had made alot more than I thought, but more the merrier.

I made the pastry and the filling all from scratch as I wanted it to be as authentic as it could be.

The pie tasted different to w expected ut s pleasently surprised. It was sweet with warmth from the nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon.

To my friends who have never tried a pumpkin pie, I strongly recommend it!

To me, Pumpkins are used for carving at Halloween, but this was delicious, and I wish I had made one sooner! Of course, I ate it with alot me cream that pictured above.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and a beautiful November weekend.

  1. That looks so delicious. In our house on Thanksgiving, we at least have three fo those for the whole week. I know it’s sugar high but the kids are always off from school and my husband loves the pumpkin pie as well. You are so good at backing.

    1. Thank you Bushra. It was alot easier to make than I thought… Which is dangerous, which means it easy to just whip up. We finished every bite, I was very happy with the outcome. Oh that sounds like a lovely idea. I’d love to visit the US and celebrate Thanksgiving with a family 🙂 x


  2. That’s awesome that you ‘participated’ in Thanksgiving! Pumpkin pie is a great dessert, isn’t it? In the U.S., it’s definitely synonymous with Thanksgiving, although a lot of us also have it at Christmas too.
