    Make sure you read the label before baking. You can make 1 - 4 cup pie or 2 - 2 cup pies depending on the pie shell(s) you purchase. And don't forget, you need 2 eggs. :P

    Last Saturday I attended a birthday dinner at a local restuarant (about 15 people). I and another Canadian ordered pumpkin pie for desert and a British gentleman sitting next to me mentioned that he had never tasted pumpkin pie. We gave him some and he liked it. 8)

    Speaking of pumpkin pie, I went to Olive Garden for dinner Friday night and had their pumpkin cheese cake for desert, talk about awesome food!

    Speaking of pumpkin-flavored consumables---Saturday night I had a Pumpkin Ale at a local Brewery (Ellicott City, MD)--very tasty! A little more bitter than I like beer to be, but it had a very distinct pumpkin aftertaste!

    That sounds great! Where can I get my hands on some of that?

    I can just see the next thread title: "Pumpkin Ale Flies Cross-Country!". :P

    Seriously though, it does sound good - really good! Maybe you could send me some as well.... :wink:

    Hmmm, I'm going to have to search what the smaller breweries are brewing. Pumpkin Ale does sound interesting. :P

    Well, I'll send you their link, at least! They call themselves the "best brewing company east of the Mississippi!" (hmmm....even though it's about 3 miles from where I live, I didn't even know it existed until almost a year after I moved there!)
    www.ellicottmillsbrewing.com/

    It's not a great website to navigate, and I didn't find the Pumpkin Ale mentioned at all. But it is at the restaurant presently, and at least you can email them if you really want to find out more.

    Thanks, pumpkinpie! It's something to look into, anyway; I'll also have to see what the microbreweries around here are producing, since I admit I'm not really up on the latest types of beer. I feel inspired to learn more now, anyway.

    This is off topic (and this is such a serious topic :wink: ), but I had to share this....

    From the CNN.com website.

    Headline
    Candy creates confusion in Arkansas schools
    Makes you wonder about what our Chicago contributor is doing down there. 8-[



    Excerpt from article
    LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas (AP) -- Arkansas teachers have been told they can continue to reward students with candy, despite a state battle against childhood obesity in schools.
    :roll: Sorry Candy, I couldn't resist ops:

    So, We are all waiting...

    We want to know what you think of Americam pumpkin pie.

    (I assume I am speaking for more on this board, than just me).

    Who here has tried pumpkin bread? Similar to banana bread loafs, only 10x better tasting. I was skeptical the first time I tried it, but once I did, I'll never look at banana bread the same again.

    As for baking and flakyness of the pie, make sure you use a good lard like tenderflake if you have that in the UK. Just don't use generic lard, or substitue with margarine or butter. It makes all the difference.

    Good stuff. Very good. Which is making me think of sweet potato muffins, which are great and I make for thanksgiving.

    Sorry guys...especially Candy! ops: I couldn't find the thread when I looked...

    The PP was lovely. No wonder you Americans are so fond of the stuff. Some time in the very-near future [when she has finished her studies and graduated], I'll be sending Candy something Scottish/English to try.

    It all depends on Candy's predelictions..?

    Pete. You did top the pie with whipped cream, right? That's the only way to eat pumkin pie, in my opinion. . .
