Pumpkin Pie...yummy.

So my pumpkin pies turned out great.  Danny said it was probably the best pumpkin pie he's ever had.  That's always nice to hear!

Start with eggs.

Eggs in a bowl.  Fascinating!

All the spices you'll need.

I forgot to take a picture of the can of pumpkin.  But you use canned pumpkin NOT pumpkin pie filling.  We're making this from scratch.  The above is Ally helping me mix up the pumpkin with the other stuff.  When I dumped the pumpkin into the bowl, Ally said it smelled like carrots.

After the milk and other stuff is added.  The filling ends up very runny, but it's supposed to be that way!

Going into the oven.  When making this particular recipe, because it's so runny, you need to put the pie plates on the oven rack, then pour the filling in.  If you try putting them in the oven after you've filled them, you'll end up spilling it.

Finished pies sitting out to cool.  Don't they look nice?

Now to make homemade whipped cream.  These are the only two ingredients you'll need.  It's really very easy.

Action shot of the mixer.  I held the mixer with one hand and the camera with the other to take this.  Awesome.

Whipped creamy goodness!  Homemade whipped cream is the best.

And finally the finished pie with the little guy from last week perched on top.  I just served the whipped cream on the side because some people don't like whipped cream on their pie.  Imagine that.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
