As promised, a few photos of the pies...rather bad photos, since excepting a lone shot of the Pumpkin pie I didn't get a chance to photograph them until Friday evening...
Though this isn't my first time making pie, I'm still learning...a lot.
I didn't cook the gooey pecan goodness (filling) long enough while it was on the stovetop, so the pie ended up being a little soupy. I actually had a little double boiler trouble which sort of contributed to the problem...speaking of which, I still need to try to unstick those pans...
Photo: Pumpkin Pie and a UFO (well, it's the pecan pie, but would you know if I didn't tell you?)
The pumpkin pie however was perfection, the American Test kitchen books are right on!
Regarding the crust however, I overmixed it so it puffed and got a little deformed in the oven, it was still yummy though!
Evidence: pre baking (isn't it pretty!)
Evidence: Post baking (bleh)
And there it is, my Thanksgiving contributions!
I'm hoping to try a different kind of pie for Christmas, perhaps a cream pie or even just a simple apple pie.
