You know, I think Pumpkin Pies are totally overrated.
Pumpkin, sugar, and a buttery crust? Meh.
Over it. Pumpkin Pie is so 1651.
But clearly you wouldn’t believe such a tall tale. You know me better than that…don’t you. You know the truth is that I desperately wanted to make a vegan and soy-free pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving this weekend. I wanted to make it for you, so you could make it for your families.
…and maybe send me one in the mail.
Well, it bombed. And I don’t mean, “It fell apart, but still tasted amazing!”, but “it fell apart and tasted like it had been sitting on the counter since Thanksgiving 1987.”
Remember my beloved Double chocolate torte that hides avocados so well? That was a good idea.
Pumpkin Pie Cinnamon Rolls? Excellent idea.
Avocados in a pumpkin pie filling? Bad idea. Baaaaaad idea.
Have you ever tasted avocados after they’ve been cooked in the oven? They are bitter…and musky. Two excellent qualities for a pumpkin pie.
Chocolate brownie, pumpkin pie filling, with a sweet pecan topping?
Somehow, I don’t think my family will mind me making this two years in a row.
I just hope they aren’t expecting a Luxury Dinner Party. That’s where I draw the line.
As for that pumpkin pie, I guess there’s always hope for the American Thanksgiving. Perhaps, I shouldn’t give up just yet…
And now from a failed recipe to blog awards. I have stellar timing, don’t I? ;)
