Finishing it all off with some pie!

A Thanksgiving meal is never complete without some pumpkin pie to top off the decadent food marathon!

If you’re brave enough to channel your inner pastry chef, this challenge is perfect for you.

To save time on Thanksgiving Day, this is another one of those recipes you can attempt in advance. Actually, you’ll want to attempt it in advance! Between pre-baking the pie crust and letting the actual pie cool, the process, while totally worth it, can take a while to make.

[tabgroup layout=”horizontal”] [tab title=”Ingredients”]1. A pre-baked pie crust

2. 2 cups (15oz can; 450g) of pumpkin puree

3. 3 large eggs

4. 1 and 1/4 cups (250g) of packed dark brown sugar

5. 1 Tablespoon (15g) of cornstarch

6. 1/2 teaspoon of salt

7. 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon

8. 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger

9. 1/4 teaspoon ground of freshly grated nutmeg

10. 1/8 teaspoon of ground cloves

11. 1/8 teaspoon of fresh ground pepper

12. 1 cup (240ml) of heavy cream

13. 1/4 cup (60ml) of milk—any is fine[/tab] [tab title=”Procedure”]1. Preheat oven to 375F.

2. Whisk the pumpkin, 3 eggs, and brown sugar together until combined. Add the cornstarch, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, pepper, cream, and milk. Vigorously whisk until everything is combined. Filling will be a little thick.

3. Pour pumpkin pie filling into a warm pre-baked crust. If you did not use a deep dish pie pan, you will have too much filling. Only fill the crust about 3/4 of the way up. Bake the pie until the center is almost set, about 55-60 minutes give or take. A small part of the center will be wobbly – that’s ok. After 25 minutes of baking, be sure to cover the edges of the crust with aluminum foil or use a piecrust shield to prevent the edges from getting too brown. Check for doneness at minute 50, and then 55, and then 60, etc.

4. Once done, transfer the pie to a wire rack and allow to cool completely for at least 3 hours.[/tab] [tab title=”Notes”]Time: 30 minutes to prepare, 1 hour to bake, and 3 hours to rest

Why I Fast on Mondays

Monday: oh, the duality of it. I love Monday and I also hate it with a deep passion. I hate that it will take a full 5 days for the weekend/nachos to arrive. I hate that I have to answer my emails. I hate that my alarm goes off and wakes me from my Sunday slumber. Yet, once I’m conscious I remember that I love waking up early on a summer Monday, hitting the streets before 8am when the city is still sleepy and heading out for a slow sweat at SLT. I love hitting the re-set button and having another chance to do and be. I also love fasting on Mondays, my chosen day of the week to detox until dinnertime (if you’re forced to begin your week, you may as well dive in head first).
