Tartine Baking Project: Recipe #19 Pumpkin Pie

You saw this one coming a mile away, right?  Thanksgiving = pumpkin pie.  As of last year, it was the first time I actually liked pumpkin pie (I made it too, is that super narcissistic of me?).  For years I was the outcast, partaking in the other desserts, not feeling quite American.  Now that I’ve acquired a taste for it, I fully understand Thanksgiving now.  Pumpkin pie is delicious, but not enough to be a major staple in the American dessert menu year-round, like apple or cherry pies are.  Pumpkin pie is worthy of it’s October/November appearance; it’s about a year since you’ve had it last and it’s okay that another year will pass before you have it again.

For my little pumpkin pie, the dough was prepared, waiting patiently in my freezer, from the time I made the banana cream pie for my birthday. 

 

There are some inanimate things in the world I wish I could hug – pie dough in a pie dish is on this list.

Is there a possibility that I am putting too many pie weights in when I put it in the oven to partially bake? 

The combination of brown sugar, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger warms my little heart.

Right out of the oven.

Not only did we celebrate Thanksgiving, but Dan and I celebrated our wedding anniversary as well!  We’ve been married four years now, and while I love pumpkin pie, it wasn’t exactly the anniversary treat I’d pick first.  It was a sacrifice I was willing to make though – the people need pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving!

I think the pie turned out pretty well.  Like I’ve said recently, I think I have an issue with judging whether or not things are done.  This pie was delicious and perfectly edible – maybe slightly too creamy?  I don’t know, we all ate it and enjoyed it.  The little dude power napped through dinner, woke up, and the pie is the only thing he’d eat.  I’m not going to base my culinary endeavors on the opinion of a two-year-old though – I still think it could have stayed in the oven for a few more minutes. 

We then dragged ourselves onto the nearest couches and chairs to let the food digest a bit.  Jack and I tuned into ‘A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving’ about fifteen minutes in.  Jack was so excited to see Snoopy.  I’d never seen the Thanksgiving special, but “A Charlie Brown Christmas” holds a dear place in my heart, so I was excited too…at first.  I started to freak out because all Charlie Brown can talk about was how everyone was dying, or on the brink of death, and the children had to take over the big jobs of building the town.  It began flashing back and forth between shots of the Mayflower and the “community center” they were building, which both had to be used as hospitals for all the dying adults.  Jack sort of just stared at the TV, in two-year-old confusion.  He did clap when Snoopy briefly made it on the screen and did some sort of flip.  I mean, I’m all about being pretty honest with the kiddos, but really?  Watching Lucy and Linus wipe the sweat off their dying father’s brow on his death bed?  Too much! 

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and ate lots of whatever it is you like to eat with your friends and family!  See you in a year, pumpkin pie!
