I’m so proud of myself right now. I can’t help it, just look at the pie, my very first pumpkin pie. Oh, did I mention the filling is made from scratch too?
Despite the idea of making things from scratch is impressive in my book, I’m convinced that I’ll need a shortcut for the filling next time. Some of you will agree that peeling through the stubborn exterior of a pumpkin (actually about a quarter of a Japanese pumpkin) and cutting it into pieces are no piece of cake, especially when you’re relying on an old and blunt generic knife to do the job for you. I should have used pre-made pumpkin puree instead. I should have. At the end of the day, I don’t think it’ll make much difference, am I correct? Even if there is any difference, there’s nothing nutmeg and cinnamon can’t fix right?
