Happy Halloween! We’re celebrating with… pie?
Halloween isn’t so much my thing, but I am (obviously) a huge Thanksgiving fan. And there’s a chill in the air and I’m finally getting into the whole fall flavors thing, let’s take those Halloween pumpkins and turn them into pies!
But first let’s play a game: apple pie, pecan pie, and pumpkin pie – how would you rank them?
Pecan is head and shoulders above the rest for me, then apple, with pumpkin coming in a distant third. Plain old pumpkin pie just never really does it for me, but it’s Nate’s favorite, which is why I decided that this year I’m going to make a super trashed-up pumpkin pie. We’re talking not-your-Grandma’s-pumpkin-pie. (Although I’m sure your Grandma makes a killer pie.) But in my perfect, dreamy pumpkin pie… there might be some liquor. Or some chocolate. It might be vegan. I haven’t decided yet, because there are so many options! And because I want you to be riddled with the same indecision, I present to you: Not Your Grandma’s Pumpkin Pie Recipe Roundup.
We’re going to raise a few eyebrows around the Thanksgiving table this year!
