This weeks Tuesdays With Dorie was chosen by Janell of Mortensen Family Memoirs. She picked Dorie’s Caramel Pumpkin Pie which is located on pages 322-323 in Baking: From My Home to Yours.

Okay, I am really running under the wire tonight so I am going to keep this short and sweet and amend it once I have a bit of this yummy pie.

I just pulled this baby out of the oven and the house smell fantastic.  It has hints of a butter crust and spiciness in the air.  I am sure I am going to love falling asleep with these smells in the house.

Tomorrow is my first day off in 6 days and unfortunately I am going to be driving 2 hours to go pay my respects to a college friend who recently passed away.  So, I am not sure when this post will get amended but it will happen in the next 2 days for sure.


After a day of driving in the rain for 4 hours, seeing old friends, saying goodbye to one, and then spending the rest of the night outside in the cold/rain at a seafood festival while God cried in my Beer and Coffee; I am glad to wake up to the sun shining and a piece of Caramel Pumpkin Pie in front of me.

I actually had the crust turn out perfect this time, it didn’t even shrink on me…YAY!!!  The crust is buttery and flaky, and the filling to the pie is smooth and has a hint of rum lingering on the middle of my tongue.  It is the breakfast of champions 🙂  Now I am just wishing for a angel or fairy to bring me a cup of coffee and I will be set.
