Anna wanted to make our lone pumpkin into a pie, and so I decided to give it a shot, even though I had never made a pie with anything but canned pumpkin puree. Here's how it turned out.
Here's the pumpkin; rather pretty, isn't it?
Samuel, always eager to help, helps me close the oven door.
Anna is hard at work cutting in the fat. Abriel and Samuel want to see what's going on.
Here's the dough all ready to be chilled. We took a break for supper and put the babies to bed after this.
Now that the pumpkin is cool, Anna peels the skin off and mashes it up.
I rolled out the crust, and put it in the pan.
Just for fun, we used the scraps to cut out leaf shapes and put them around the crust.
Anna mixes and measures the ingredients.
Now it ready to go in the oven.
Finished at last!
