This lovely pumpkin pie was supposed to grace my dessert table on Thanksgiving . . . but we had a little problem. When I came home from work last Wednesday I had a headache, and took an unexpected nap. Well, I was now 4 hrs. behind schedule with my Thanksgiving preparations.
Fast forward to 10:00 p.m. I decided to make a double batch of pumpkin pie. I was finished by 10:15! Pop it in the oven, 15 minutes at 450 degrees, 50 minutes at 350 degrees! No problem, I'll be in bed by before midnight!
Fast forward to 15 minutes after midnight . . . OH NO, I dozed off with my pie in the oven at 450 degrees for 1 hr. 55 minutes!!!! I flew out to the kitchen and opened the oven door with a swift pull - then sadly put my charcoal pumpkin pie in the trash and promptly went to bed!
We went to Maine on Saturday and I made the second pie there - it was delicious! I hope you enjoyed my kitchen disaster!
