Homemade Pumpkin Pie

Last night Josh and I made a delicious homemade pumpkin pie!

We've been in a "cooking experiment" mode lately because we're trying to not eat out as much... so far it's going pretty well. Neither one of us cook a lot, so it's been fun cooking together and trying new things. We've made chili, tuna casserole, hawaiian pizzas, and a few other things. So far it's all been pretty good except our tuna casserole. I'm not sure how you mess up a tuna casserole, but we did.. somehow. It wasn't awful, but it was missing something. Our hawaiian pizzas were amazing though, and we're making them again tonight so I will pass along the recipe later!

Anyway, we decided to try out making one of our favorite fall desserts: pumpkin pie!

It's super good & easy, so I thought I'd share! :) Here's what you need...

We were going to be really fancy and use fresh pumpkin from the pumpkins we got at the pumpkin patch, but we quickly found out that it's a lot of work in order to use real pumpkin. So, we opted for the canned stuff...

Which, by the way, does not taste good by itself...

how does pumpkin taste?

You can ask Josh, he tried it. Apparently the good taste of pumpkin pie is all the spices!

All you do is mix it all together in a bowl, then pour it into your pie crust(s)!

2 pies

We made 2 pies, and baked them together for 25 minutes at 425 degrees.

Then of course when you serve it you have to add cool whip!!! Or I'm sure vanilla ice cream would be good too.
