Friday's Fare

Posted Friday, October 29, 2010 by Kally83
Just one and a half more days till Samhain!! Munchkin is getting super excited and, let's be honest here, so am I!! I have everything planned out for Sunday evening so it looks to be a lot of fun. The boys will be spending pretty much the whole weekend in their costumes (well, Bean's is a sleeper) what with two playdates and the Halloween parade at church. Saturday night we're heading over to my in-laws house to meet my brother-in-law's fiancee from the Phillipines which should be very exciting. Hopefully we're able to make her feel welcome, both to Canada and the family!

Well, last but not least, a dessert is required for an evening such as Samhain and what could be more fitting than pumpkin pie...but not just any pumpkin pie....creamy pumpkin pie! I've been making this for a few year's now and my family just love it. It's no bake which makes it even easier! One warning though: make sure to use INSTANT pudding mix otherwise it doesn't solidify properly (trust me, I learned the hard way!)

Creamy Pumpkin Pie

1 cup canned pumpkin (or use fresh of course!)
1 ¼ cup evaporated milk
¼ tsp salt
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp ginger (go easy)
1 regular size pkg Jello Vanilla INSTANT Pudding
1 baked and cooled 8” pie shell (I buy the pre-made graham ones)

PhotobucketCombine pumpkin, milk, salt and spices in a bowl. Add pudding mix. Beat slowly with an egg-beater until well mixed, about 1 minute. Pour into pie shell. Chill until set, about 2 hours.
Garnish with Cool Whip.
