Pumpkin or apple pie at Thanksgiving (or choose any fall holiday)? Do you have a family recipe?


The only time I really eat pie is Thanksgiving. Huh. Just realized that. So I’m a big fan of pumpkin stuff (but not like the crazy pumpkin spice latte folks – you know who you are). OneĀ  year I decided I was going to make a pumpkin pie from scratch. I went to the farmer’s market, picked out a nice sugar pumpkin (with the help of a nice farmer) and proceeded to work really freaking hard. But, it totally sucked. I think I forgot to put sugar in it or something. I was crushed and have been a canned pumpkin puree devotee ever since.

But there’s something about apple pie (and no it’s not a sex thing). It does have cinnamon (holla!) which is a huge plus. It’s so comforting. I’ve never tried to make an apple pie, so no bad feelings there. My mom makes a killer apple pie. She also let me make pinwheels with the leftover pie crust dough. My mom rules.

Ah heck, if I’m being honest – my favorite pie isn’t any certain kind of pie. It’s the pie crust!

look at that sweet, sweet crust...heaven.
