The Making of the Pumpkin Pie

We helped mom make pumpkin pie this morning☺
Mom decided that instead of making the traditional pie dough crust, she would make a gingersnap pie crust instead.  

 Gingersnaps are good cookies!
 She used 1 1/2 cups of ground gingersnaps and added 1/4 cup of melted butter and a dash of orange peel. 
Press it into the bottom of your pie plate and bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.   Let cool and add the pumpkin filling. 
 Now to tastetest the pumpkin before it gets mixed with all of the spices and stuffs.  
 When do we get to cut into the pumpkin pie, mom?!   yummmmmmmmmmm
Love ya lots♥

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH MY MOM'S MOUTH IS DRIBBLING ALL OVER THE KEYBOARD. GINGER SNAP PIE CRUST SOUNDS DELICIOUS. MOM IS NOT VERY GOOD A MAKING PIE CRUST SO THIS IS RIGHT UP HER ALLEY OF EXPERTISE.
AUNTY KAREN AND UNDLE GREG WILL BE HERE TOMORROW. AUNTY K IS THE FAMILY PIE QUEEN. SHE IS MAKING APPLE AND A PUMPKIN.

That's a good idea using ginger snaps for the crust! Our Angel Miss Ginger's name was actually Ginger Snap.

Good grief! That sounds and looks incredible. It is just me and my husband this year so I am only making his favorite lemon ice box pie. I LOVE pumpkin pie the best though. ♥

Mom made apple cake last week. It was great and Dad ate so much that she had to make another one. We liked it a lot too because we love apples. She said she'd make another today if we're good dogs.

Since Mom is the one that khan read, she rekhogizes the name on the khookie bag!

Once upon a time, a regular trip to their outlet with TADN, Auntie Di, and Unkhle Paul was part of things - it's only five or so miles away

We hope woo enjoyed helping and tasting!
