Pumpkin pie

Yields: 12 Servings Difficulty: Easy Prep Time: 30 Mins Cook Time: 1 Hr 45 Mins Total Time: 2 Hr 15 Mins

Never have I ever been a fan of pumpkin. I have no clue why but, last week, my husband told me that he had two recipes with which he used to impress women with. One was risotto and the other one is pumpkin pie.

I was a bit disappointed that I only tried the risotto after we got married and the tart… well… just the other day, after he made the confession.

I am still wondering why was I not worthy of his cooking but I can tell you I would have asked his hand in marriage first if I would have tasted his pumpkin pie earlier…
