I always make my late mother's recipe but this year I used a packaged crust from the store for the very first time. My mother would be horrified if she knew.Today I tried to bake a pumpkin pie for the first time. I found all the recipes to be overly complikated, so I skipped a few steps like pre-baking the crust, covering the edges of the crust with foil, and also realized I havo no cream for the filling and didn't feel like waiting in line outside the shop (quarantine measures) just for it, so skipped it too. It turned out quite good looking, despite of some cracks. All the recipes said to let it cool off completely, or at least for an hour, but who has that kind of self control, that's insanity. So I cut it after half an hour. The insides are a complete mush, I wonder if they solidify as it completely cools off. Despite it, somehow, it was really delicious. I topped it with sweetened greek yoghurt with vanilla, it was great. I think I'll go have some more.
I believe some people used tinned evaporated milk instead of cream.
Sorry to butt in here but I love baking and couldn't resist.
