National Dessert Month And Pumpkin Pie

October is a wonderful month!

  If I had to choose a month that I am loving this year, I would vote for October. I love October for many reasons. This month started out with the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta and then a trip to Chicago to visit my family and attend the Moms Meet Wow Summit. The weather here is perfect. I am still wearing shorts and can have my windows open but it is not too hot. It has cooled down enough that I can turn on the oven and do some baking. My teen is happy that I can finally start baking as his birthday is in October and I always bake him a homemade pumpkin pie. October is also
National Dessert month so that gives me another wonderful reason to bake.

  My son's birthday was two days after I returned from Chicago and I was busy with work so I did not get a chance to bake him a pie. Sure I could have bought one but my son said it had to be homemade. So I agreed to bake him one the following weekend. By the time the weekend came and I got to the store, this mom was tired. So I decided to at least buy a premade crust, hoping the teen would not notice as the last time I tried to do that he said no way and made the pie crust himself. While I was in the freezer section looking for the pie crust, I saw a frozen pie that was naturally wholesome and decided to try it as this tired mom did not feel like baking. I was not going break my promise of a birthday pie for my teen son. I did buy whipping cream so I could make homemade whip cream for the pie.

  I am glad I took a chance of this frozen pumpkin pie. From the moment it started baking, I knew it was just like a homemade pie. The pie may have been frozen but it turned to a liquid and rose up just like my homemade pumpkin pie. Once the pice was done, it looked and smelled like a homemade pie.

      The real test came when I served the pie to my teenager son. The pie passed the test as he reached for a second slice of pie. This pie tasted homemade and had a nice flaky crust. My homemade whip cream went perfectly with the crust. I don't know why I buy the stuff in the can as whip cream is so easy to make and tastes way better. I do love celebrating National Dessert Month and my son's birthday. So how will you celebrate National Dessert Month?
