Eggless Pumpkin Pie18:22
We are in the second week of BM#59 and my theme for the week is "Holiday Bakes".There is an infinite list of to do recipes for Holiday bakes in my Bookmarks.Every year the list expands more and more.You will not believe that I hadn't posted pumpkin pie yet.I have wanted to bake it for long, but somehow always skipped due to one reason or another.This Thanksgiving,I bought those cute little pumpkins for pie to make sure I would bake it.
Finally,on a one fine sunny day I gathered the ingredients and baked it.I made the pumpkin puree at home and shall post the recipe very soon.
Let me tell you one weird thing that I hadn't tasted the pumpkin pie before in my life .This was the first time I experienced the flavors of it.The spice powders ,condensed milk pumpkin all together in the pie were marvelous.I now regret why I hadn't tried it before.My family loved this scrumptious pie.I also promised them to make it on each Thanksgiving from now on.
