My First Ever Pumpkin Pie

Until last year I'd never eaten anything pumpkin, I'd never tried the Pumpkin Spiced Latte from Starbucks (I think it was last year -maybe the year before?) and the thought of pumpkin pie made me quite sick. But, this is because someone at some point in my life told me that pumpkin tastes just like it smells, and lets be honest -the smell isn't the best is it?

So last year (again, maybe the year before), my friend basically forced me into trying the Pumpkin Spiced Latte, telling me it was all kinds of sweet deliciousness and that I'd love it. Fully expecting to absolutely hate it I gave it a go -I was instantly hooked, and completely got the hype around them and since then have been all about the pumpkin in autumn. Shame on whoever told me that in my impressionable youth and ruined years of pumpkin enjoyment for me...shame on you!

Anyway...as I now know differently, last week I gave pumpkin pie ago. It was my first time making one, so after reading and watching a few recipes online I used this one here. Not only is the end result excellent, but the man in the video is so much fun to listen to, I ended up watching quite a few from his channel. It's also one of the more simple recipes I found. I had no idea how it was going to turn out, and if it had ended up some hideous disaster then these pictures would have found their way to the trash, but fortunately it was a success so here we are!

If you check out his recipe, what I would say is next time I'd cook mine maybe 10 minutes less that it said to do. I think a lot of the time this can come down to your own oven so that may not be the case for everyone. Also I added a little extra cinnamon than the recipe called for, just because I love it.

Oh, and if your in the UK and are looking for this pumpkin puree, I found it in Waitrose and on Amazon.
