~Pumpkin Pie~

Mmm~ The smell of this particular pie is good~ My Owner thought that it was not that awesome since it was made of pumpkin; he hates vegetables. But the sweet smell of it took him to try it anyway. He loves it~

I heard that some Humans like to prepare this pie during a day called Thanksgiving, known as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. As you might know, my Owner and I are not interested in such celebrations, except for the sweets that they can offer~ Heh~

Alright, according with the recipe that Reiji,my Owner’s big brother used, you don’t have to buy a prepared crust, and no rolling is needed.
This pumpkin pie can be made and refrigerated up to 1 day in advance. And remember to let it come to room temperature before serving.

Ingredients:

For the crust:

  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 stick), melted and cooled slightly
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more as needed

For the pie:

  • 1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin purée (not pie mix)
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • Easy Whipped Cream, for serving

Nuevo LienPreparation:

For the crust:

  1. Stir the butter, oil, sugar, and salt together in a medium bowl until evenly combined. Add the measured flour and stir until a soft dough forms.
  2. Sprinkle the dough in small clumps over the bottom of a 9-1/2-inch deep-dish pie plate. Using a measuring cup or your fingers, evenly press the dough into the bottom and up the sides of the plate (flour the cup or your fingers occasionally to prevent sticking). Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

For the pie:

  1. Heat the oven to 350°F and arrange a rack in the lower third. Place a baking sheet on the rack while the oven is heating.
  2. Place all of the ingredients except the whipped cream in a large bowl and whisk until smooth and combined. Pour into the chilled pie crust.
  3. Place the pie on the hot baking sheet and bake until the top starts to brown and the filling is set but still jiggles slightly in the center, about 50 minutes. Remove from the oven to a wire rack and let cool completely before serving. Top slices of the pie with whipped cream, if desired.
