Some liked it. Some left it.

When we last got together I told you about baking pumpkin pies both with and without a crust for our family Thanksgiving get together. Christine of Christine's Blog wanted an update on what people thought.

The Thanksgiving  dinner was a real feast, with large platters of turkey, bowls of dressing and, mashed potatoes, conventional cranberry sauce and cranberry jello, and pans of corn casserole, green bean casserole, and sweet potatoes. In addition to my pies, there were brownies and a pumpkin gooey butter cake.

At the end of the evening yesterday both pies had been cut into.  Half of the traditional one was gone, but only two pieces of the crustless pie had been served.  I brought it home, and it will be part of our encore dinner tonight.  Then I'll slice the rest and freeze it for future use.

  1. Thanks for the update Kathy, I would've tried the crustless piece.

  2. And I would have taken seconds of crustless. Probably seconds the first time around!

    1. If I ever invite you to Thanksgiving dinner I'll make sure to have plenty of custard-only pies.

    1. Sadly, they haven't perfected pie teleporting yet.

    1. It was. My niece, who was the main cook, did a good job of dividing up the cooking chores so no one was overwhelmed.
