Best Pumpkin Pie

Some friends of mine are having a Halloween party but aren't having any fancy dress!

To counter this outrage I intend to bring a pumpkin pie but have no idea as to the best way of making it.

Anyone here have tips on that?

Go to the Southern cooking website, Dac. Several recipes there, and they are all quite good.

I've made this Pumpkin Pie recipe before Dacarlo, it's easy to make and tastes fantastic. Good luck.

Thanks for that

And when I'm done with the pie I'll have a crack at making a lantern too.

I found a few sites like that but there tends to be a few differences where people make their own individual recommendations.

1. Acquire a sexually appealing pumpkin
2. Make many holes in the pumpkin, each a little smaller than your penis (use a penny as a pattern)
3. Slather the pumpkin with Crisco or lard (style pernts for lard)
4. Microwave until just tender
5. Wrap in a clean towel until you arrive at your friends' house
6. Unveil your warm, pliant pumpkin to your friends
7. Make pie.

Just take along some pumpkin flavoured coffee dacs, that should freak 'em out enough.

really? you're still that disturbed over my coffee?
I have pumpkin beer in the fridge, too. it's not as good as the pecan ale, but it's actually pretty good.

I have a weakness for pretty much anything flavoured with coconut, pumpkin, or pecan.

Pumpkin beer isn't bad. I wouldn't want to get shitty on it, though.

Pumpkin beer? What the hell? Why take a good beer and pumpkin it up?

Americans are weird.

you guys don't know what you're missing.

I've heard that, but not about this particular kind.
(I've never tried the others they make)
Quite a few of the pecan ale reviews mention that it is way better than their usual fare.

I just started drinking coffee this year. Perhaps that's the mark I'm finally feeling the pinch of age

Thinking of getting one of these:

It's convenient compared to one of those make from scratch machines. The only problem is the need for the manufacturers coffee pods.

You should try making a sweet potato pie, Dac. It's very similar to a pumpkin pie and is soooo good. It will be even better if you know how to make a great pie crust, rather than using a ready-made pie crust.

Recipe.

Amen.
