The Best Pumpkin Pie Ever!

On our adventure at the Great Pumpkin Patch I found a blue pumpkin. My hubby says it's a squash and I say it's a pumpkin. It's a Jarrendale Pumpkin. It's super thick and probably not the best choice for carving since it took me two days with my hand cramping.

I carved Cinderella's Carriage and the fairy god mother into it and added some gold glitter for fairy dust. Then dropped it off at Daisy Lane for the pumpkin decorating contest.

I also dropped off my kiddo's pumpkin since it was AWESOME too! The Pumpkin Peanut Pirate Ship complete with peanuts as pirates and carrots for cannons.
Oh and two days after dropping them off I got a call saying that we had won 1st and 2nd place!

 Back to the Jarrendale....
I saved the seeds for planting next year and most of the insides for pie! I have to say it makes the best pumpkin pie! After hunting through different recipes to use I ended up using this recipe, with premade crust and a 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk instead of just milk, 3 tbsp of pumpkin pie spice instead of 2, and a pinch of cinnamon (because I love cinnamon when baking!) I covered the crust with foil and Oh My Yum! My very first ever home made pumpkin pies were created!
