I don’t like pumpkin pie. But I do like turtles. And now that I’ve made this, I know that I love turtles enough to make me like pumpkin pie if their elements are a part of it.
As for all normal humans (you know, the ones who already like pumpkin pie), they will like this pie too. It was a huge hit at my husband’s potluck at work. It is sweet & creamy–more like a cream pie than your usual custard filling, but still with the pumpkin flavor (made more palatable enhanced by the caramel & pecans).
This is a very simple recipe, so of course I had to make it difficult and fussy by making my own caramel sauce and graham cracker crust. I wouldn’t make my own breadcrumbs for a meatloaf , but I’ve spent up to an hour making huge amounts of frosting that requires boiling sugar & corn syrup, beating egg yolks to death…etc, etc, ad nausium.
I think I have a problem.
If you have similar problems, you can watch my step-by-step video at the end and prepare your own caramel sauce as well.
Turtle Pumpkin Pie
That looks ridiculously delicious! The egg nog substitution sounds genius–totally going to borrow that idea!
