    Pumpkin Pie 2008

    Aww, how I miss delicious Pumpkin Pies. :'(

    I have no oven, so I can not make any myself, as suggested in other similar threads. But I really would like to have a yummy pumpkin pie this year. Can somebody please suggest a bakery or hotel that will have them during Halloween/Thanksgiving season???

    Thank you!

    blumenelf, it's SO EASY to make I can PM you the recipe and tell you where to get the ingredients. a warm one is so much yummier than a store bought one anyway.

    3/4 cup granulated sugar
    1 heaping teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon ginger
    1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
    2 large eggs
    1 can (15 oz.) Pure Pumpkin (not the pumpkin pie filling, just canned pumpkin)
    1 can (12 fl. oz.) Evaporated Milk (most cans here are 15 oz, just make sure you don't use quite all of it)
    1 unbaked 9-inch deep-dish pie shell (can get this at oliver's but we also often use that ready-crust graham cracker crust - it will fill 2 of these)
    Cool Whip (can also be purchased at oliver's)

    Directions:
    MIX sugar, cinnamon, salt, ginger and nutmeg in small bowl. Beat eggs in large bowl. Stir in pumpkin and sugar-spice mixture. Gradually stir in evaporated milk.

    POUR into pie shell. Cover egde of pie shell (above where the filling sits) with aluminum foil to keep from burning

    BAKE in preheated 220? C oven for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 175? c; bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. (reduce time to 25-30 minutes if you use the graham cracker crust) Cool on wire rack for 2 hours. Serve immediately or refrigerate. Top with cool whip before serving.

    I'm not sure what your budget is but in HK my husband and I bought a small oven (about the size of a bigger breadbox) for something like $300 HKD (maybe less)--you can find this sort of thing at SOGO but we bought ours at a discount shop across the street from SOGO inside of a mall. I can bake anything in there! Including bread, casseroles, pies, cakes....the temperature setting is just about as high as a normal larger-sized oven! So, instead of forking out maybe $150+ HKD for a pie, I would suggest looking for a small oven. You can size down recipes and IKEA has baking dishes and pans that will fit that size of oven. Our oven has two racks inside so what I do is split the recipe into two smaller dishes and make two smaller pies instead of one. Then whenever you get in the mood for pie or anything else baked, you have your very own oven to use! I totally like my oven and find it versatile and it sure beats having to fry everything to eat it! Does anyone else have good suggestions on places to buy a decently-priced smaller oven in HK?
