It's in the oven. It would seem that I have usually been asked to bring a pumpkin pie to the Thanksgiving holiday repast. And I do not have a very good record with my pumpkin pies. For some reason mine never are "set" within the recommended amount of time.
Once I brought a rather soggy one to my brother's Thanksgiving dinner. I ended up leaving it there since my SIL said she would do something with it. I strongly suspect it ended up going down the drain, but I dunno. Maybe she has more patience than I have, with regards to re-doing things.
On the opposite side of the coin; just a few years ago I was in charge of the pumpkin pie here to take to mother-in-law's Thanksgiving, and I made the mistake of thinking I'd just pop it in the oven an hour or so before time to go over there.
Two hours later we were still waiting for the stupid thing to "set." I think I just finally took it and it turned out OK, but not great.
My MIL said that she never puts in the full amount of evap milk called for by the recipe. So the past few times I have attempted pumpkin pie I have done that; cut back on the evap milk. But it seems it STILL takes forever for it to set.
Anyway. After about a 70-75 minute baking period I just now took it out of the oven for tomorrow. I hope it's edible.
I always make this "Never Fails" pie crust recipe. I really, really am bad at pie crusts. Not at the making of the actual crust, but the rolling out and putting in the pie pan part. It's always nice and flaky and tastes great but it looks like a 5 year old did it. Though I must say, this one looks better than my usual. I guess I ought to make more pies, then my finesse with the crusts might improve.
Well, hope everyone has a great Turkey Day tomorrow.
