Perfect Pumpkin Pie
I never cared much for pumpkin pie, it always seemed the most boring and uninspired of the pies and overall it was just a little bland. Not to mention on Thanksgiving there is limited stomach space and it is not to be wasted on a slice of mediocre pie.
I don’t know what got me inspired to make a pumpkin pie that I’d actually like. But something did and I set about researching typical ingredients, making pumpkin puree and generally trying to figure out why pumpkin pies are always so blah.
And I think I found it. No one puts much effort or thought into pumpkin pies aside from trying to keep the top from cracking. It’s a list of ingredients that go into the oven, someone will eat a slice or two and that’s the end of it.
But THIS pumpkin pie is divine. The heavy cream, extra brown sugar and the addition of the sugared cranberries really take it to another level. And it’s baked in the most buttery crust you can imagine. So give it a try this year, make it ahead of time and wow everyone with your extraordinary take on this classic.
