Tuesdays (err...Thursdays) With Dorie

So many assignments, so little time to post!  Which brings us to Thursdays with Dorie....I took the liberty of changing the day to accommodate my's all about ME!!

So this weeks assignment was Thanksgiving Twofer Pie, chosen by Vibi of La Casserole Carree, and was basically a combination of Pumpkin and Pecan Pies....a perfect choice for Thanksgiving week.  Thanks, Vibi.  (You can get the recipe on Vibi's site)

This was really easy to put together and my only glitch was that my crust stuck to my pie plate, which didn't exactly make for a beautiful presentation, but it still tasted fine.  I will say that I'm not a huge "pie person" so the only time I'd make this again would be for Thanksgiving.  I served it last night with vanilla ice cream, which I think overpowered the pie, so tonight I'm making some whipped cream which I think will be perfect.

Since my disaster with the rice pudding last week, I read all of the comments from the other bakers before I started this one, and I have to agree with everyone else that the baking time stated in the recipe was not long enough.  I probably had mine in for an additional 10-15 minutes.

I was actually organized enough to take some pics this time.....yea, me!

The pumpkin filling went in first

The pecans get sprinkled on top of the pumpkin mixture

You then pour on the Pecan filling

Then you bake and this is what you get!!


As I type this, I'm watching my Cowboys beat up on the Seahawks (and admiring the soon-to-be-mine Cowboy's endzone......still waiting on those donations, people) and it brought back memories of three years ago and sitting in a box at Texas Stadium on Thanksgiving Day with some great friends.

This is Mr. B (on the right) with one of our hosts, Hal.  Unfortunately, Hal passed away about a year after this was taken.  We miss you, Hal!  Thanks for a great memory.
