Fall is in the Air !

Sure we're still in the midst of the summer garden harvest but that doesn't mean we can't also get a jump on a fall favorite like pumpkin pie! I had to use canned stuff to make the filling but I made the crust from scratch as always. I use this Pie Crust 101 recipe but pie crust is more about the technique than the recipe (its just flower, salt, shortening and water). Its best to find somebody who knows how to make pie dough and make a couple with them. Or just go for it and don't be intimidated. Its so darn easy you won't believe it! Here they are, already getting a bit of attention:


  1. i made the first PP of the year last week! i uncovered frozen pumpkin in the botttom of the freezer from last fall. we have had a few small ones come out of the garden, but not eaten yet. -acb

  2. Looks delicious! We just bought some of our first pumpkins at the farmers market last Friday:)
