Truth be told we love everything pumpkin. From soup to desserts pumpkin is in our lives all year long.
We have always made pumpkin pie. I mean sure you can buy a pumpkin pie at the store but they really don’t compare to a homemade pie.
And they really are pretty simple to make. You will start by mixing granulated sugar, ground cinnamon, salt, ground ginger, ground cloves, eggs, evaporated milk, canned pumpkin, ( or you could use fresh if you like).
That’s it for the pumpkin pie part.
Use your hand held mixer and mix well.
what you will need for the Meringue:
6 egg whites , 2 teaspoon cream of tartar, 2/3 cup sugar.
Spread meringue over the top of the pie (when it has finished baking to the edge of the crust, sealing the pie.
Bake in a 350-degree oven for an additional 15 minutes.
Doesn’t it look amazing?! So how about switching things up this year? Try making your pumpkin pie with toasted meringue. It will be a nice change from the usual and maybe a new favorite for your dessert table.
