TWD -- Twofer Thanksgiving Pie
I am definitely late posting all of my blogs this month, but there's a good reason. There's also a good reason why I didn't put much effort into the presentation of this pie as well as my Daring Baker's challenge this month. That reason will be posted shortly. Anyway, I made this pie for Thanksgiving. We had to tell my grandma not to bring her typical array of pies (pumpkin and pecan) because I was making a pie for my blog. I think she understood. This pie is, as the name implies, two for one -- pumpkin and pecan pie combo. It was really pretty good! I'm not a big pumpkin or pecan pie person, but I did enjoy this pie. I made a couple of changes, due to a lack of certain ingredients (also caused by the object in the post that I will soon divulge). Instead of using dark rum, I used Brandy, and instead of cream I used 1/3 + 1/6 cup of milk and 1/3 + 1/6 cup of butter.
