TWD: Caramel Pumpkin Pie

There were two reasons why I wasn't going to sit out TWD this week:

#1 - It's pumpkin pie. I think we all know that I love pumpkin and I think pumpkin pie is my all time favorite pumpkin dessert. Well... maybe there is a tie between pumpkin pie and pumpkin roll!

#2- I actually know the host for this week in real life. :) Janell and I met in Germany when both of our husbands were stationed there so I knew that I wouldn't be missing her hosting week!

This pie is different than the traditional pumpkin pie since it has the addition of caramel. I used to be afraid of caramel, but I am pretty sure I have conquered it and I no longer wince at the thought of a recipe with caramel!

The caramel adds a nice depth to the pumpkin filling and it was a very, very good pie! Oh, and if you are wondering about the odd shaped slice above it is because I quartered the recipe and was using my mini-pie tins for a tart and had to use an oval dish for the pie. :)

Thanks to Janell for hosting this week! The recipe can be found at her blog or on page 322 of BFMHTY.

That looks so yum!! And yay for Janell's week to pick!!! Wish I could help you try it out. I guess I'll have to try it myself along with the 500 recipes from your blog I want to try! :)

I'm so glad you liked it! By the way, I tried the cocoa version of your Pumpkin Latte the other day--LOVED IT. I'm so glad you shared the recipe.

Thanks for baking along with me!

All of that whipped cream looks so decadent!

Um, I knew you liked scones but didn't realize you loved pumpkin as much. :)

This pie WAS great. Love the caramelly taste. I like how yours looks using that other tin and layered with whipped cream on top.

I wasn't satisfied with how mine turned out but I think I'd be happy if I could have a slice of your caramel pumpkin pie! And how cool that you actually know Janell!
