Ah, yes - the season where I deliberately wander into the kitchen to commit atrocities. Every year, sometime between Halloween and laloshin's birthday, I feel the need to cook.
To start off this season, we shall begin with one I have cooked many times without killing anyone (I still need to work on that) and I now present...
Corporate Rebellion Pie
1 15 oz can pumpkin
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk (If you use the chocolate flavor, you are stranger than I am. Call me when it's ready.)
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger paste
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 nine inch pie crust of choice (don't use the chocolate cookie one unless you also use the chocolate sweetened condensed milk. Send me directions to your place if you do.)
Preheat oven to 425°
In a large bowl, combine filling ingredients, mixing well. Pour into pie crust. Bake 15 minutes at 425° . Reduce oven temperature to 350° (no, you don’t need to open the oven door) and continue baking 35 to 40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center of the pie comes out clean. No, it does not count if you lick it clean, and it will still burn your tongue.
Cool pie completely before cutting. Himself prefers to have it after it has been refrigerated overnight. Garnish with whipped cream, and refrigerate any leftovers.
Now to work on the drabble for laloshin's birthday. She likes explosions with roses and chocolates, if I remember correctly.
