Dale came back from his nephews place with a few bags of extra food. (I am not too sure about that story.) Part of the food included a can of pumpkin and a graham cracker pie crust.
The conspiracy included Trisha baking a pie and dropping it off at his nephew's along with a cake that Dale is baking and a few other things. If I take the back way, it isn't too far out of my way.
Pleading ignorance on how to bake a pumpkin pie, Dale asked me to bake it. (Don't be fooled! Dale is a excellent at cooking, baking and canning.) I picked up the can, read off the ingrdients glanced over the top of my glasses with that "really??" look. Then I sent him to the grocery store for the right pie crusts and a can of evaporated milk. We had the rest of the supplies.
I followed the directions on the side of the can.
The final instruction says, "cool on wire rack for two hours." LOL - really!?!? They cooled for twenty inutes. One went in the fridge for half an hour. Then I had a normal size slice and Dale ate nearly half the pie. (We had part of a carton of whipping cream in the fridge. It got whipped up with vanilla and a couple tablespoons of powdered sugar.) Mmmmm good.
