To my fellow Canadians out there (especially those who live elsewhere, like me) – happy Thanksgiving!
We had a little friendsgiving last night, with a couple and their sweet little baby girl. I made a couple of family favourite recipes, giving them a taste of our Canadian traditions.
They’d never tried pumpkin pie before, so it’s a good thing that this recipe from Once Upon a Chef delivered! No cracks to be found, whatsoever. I upped the cinnamon a little, added a bit of mace and cardamon, then used my own pie crust recipe (making sure I had enough to make all the little leaves). Top it off with some rum whipped cream (recipe from Ina Garten, I used icing sugar and reduced the amount a bit) because why make plain stuff when you can add spiced rum? Oh, and I probably made enough leaves to cover the whole pie and then some – apparently I can’t estimate…
Since I make pumpkin pie maybe once every three years, I never remember which recipe I used before – it’s always an adventure!
How did you guys celebrate?
