I don't even like pumpkin pie, but this is the best one I've had! Pumpkin is my husband's favorite, so I had to make one for Thanksgiving. Followed the recipe exactly, even though I wasn't sure that it was enough cinnamon and I was afraid the Chinese 5-spice would be strange, but it was fantastic! Also, no cracks! I highly recommend and will make it again :-) Chef John with another winner!
This classic creme brulee gets a seasonal twist with pumpkin puree, cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg.
No crack, but highly addictive, nonetheless!! This recipe came up trumps. The extra egg yolks made the pie super velvety/firm and the Chinese five spice gave the pie a little more umph, which I appreciated. I also added a splash of maple syrup which did not hurt the flavour of the pie, not-one-bit! I made this for Thanksgiving. Not being a native to the US I wasn't sure how the pie would go down, but my guests finished their plates, most claiming that "I don't normally like pumpkin pie but this is really delicious!" And I think that my midwestern man's pouty lip was a good indication of it's success when I sent our guests home with a couple of slices. My oven runs a wee bit hot and "darkened" the edge of the pie crust more than I would like but that's my deal... otherwise, Chef John, this is a pie that I will be making for LIFE!!
Best pumpkin pie I have had. Everyone thought it was great.
