Pumpkin Spice Pie with Oats Crust

Pumpkin Spice Pie with Oats Crust


When you live in Europe, it's hard to get the fuss about "pumpkin spice lattes"... Or Halloween... Or anything with pumpkin. Well I haven't had a lot of pumpkin pies in my life so it's hard to judge for me what makes a good pumpkin pie, but I thought I would give it a try! I'm determined to bake at least 1 pumpkin pie every week untill the end of October, so I can perfect my recipe/and try different recipes (vegan pumpkin pie anyone?).

So I had my first go today with a pumpkin pie. I made my own blend of pumpkin spices, which I store in a small jar. Unfortunately you can not get your hands on a can of pumpkin puree, so that means making it the old-fashioned way: by hand. Cutting, cooking, & blending. I've read reviews online that pumpkin pies made with fresh pumpkins, taste better. This recipe definitely needs some tweeking, and I already know what I'm going to do different at my next try. My hands are already itching to bake another pie. But here's my review from this recipe:

Taste: 4.5 out of 5
Consistency: 3 out of 5
Overall appeal: 3 out of 5




Pumpkin Pie: recipe from AllRecipes.com, but instead made a oatmeal-cookie crust.


Any good tips on baking a pumpkin pie?
