True confession, I used to hate pie. I was a kid, and I didn’t know any better, okay? I think it’s safe to say I’ve made up for lost time.
I dedicated an absurd amount of Monday to pie making. After my breakfast pie, I took my sweet time making my first completely from scratch (even the crust, unlike my apple pie) pumpkin pie using this recipe from Healthy Happy Life. I made my own pumpkin puree and reduced the amount of sugar so I could use the last of my chickpea buttercream instead of cream cheeze, but otherwise I was true to the recipe.
Overall, I consider it a success. It was totally delicious and had a great texture.
It just took me too long to get everything ready to make it. I’m sure the fault lies with me more than the recipe, but I am interested in dating around. If anyone has suggestions, I’m open to being set-up.
