It’s Thanksgiving long weekend here and tonight I had a great dinner with a dear friend. No turkey, but rather Cornish hens – lots of veggies and of course, pumpkin pie!
My friend made all the food and I contributed the pumpkin pie. I found the recipe on the Joy of Baking website and decided this was a great occasion to not only make my first every pastry – Pate Brisee – but to also make fresh pumpkin puree. Here are pics of the yummy dinner and my adventures in making my first ever pumpkin pie:
