Pumpkin pie recipe

The pumpkin pie recipe is so easy to do and it's great for guests. After carving the pumpkins for Halloween, my bf wanted to whip up a pumpkin pie recipe and it turned out pretty delicious. We went out to buy pure pumpkin contents from the grocery store and they certainly look like pumpkin purée.

Yes, we also fell into the trap of thinking that we can just use contents from our actual pumpkins that we just carved right [Here]. I guess you can’t hit two birds with one stone. Nevertheless, pumpkin in a can is perfectly fine. With brown sugar, cinnamon, and a bit of nutmeg, it’s a dessert we couldn’t resist. On a side note, you can use 2/3 cup of brown sugar instead of 1 cup if you don’t want it to be too sweet but sweet enough. Anyway, Enjoy :)

(PS. To my knowledge, you use sugar/sweet pumpkin if you want to start from scratch. Also, avoid getting large pumpkins like in the link above as it is not meant to be bred for pumpkin pies but for carving and cooking seeds)

It was delicious. I served it to my cousins and some went for seconds :)
It has a nice texture to it and I absolutely love the golden reflection.
fine print: do not throw the pie. only the victim gets to eat it.
