Pushing Fall




I am a Pumpkin Pie lover and although I do make these special pies several times during the year... I so love the luscious texture of a good Pumpkin Pie.


Am I pushing Fall... yes!
It's been so hot here for several months and soon August will turn into September!  I'm so ready for it!


I went into my closet and took out a few of my beautiful "Orange" Fall decorations.  There sitting on the counter in my dining room waiting for me to get busy decorating... but, am I a bit too early?


After putting the pumpkin and all the ingredients into the mixer, the aroma really brought back memories of the Fall.


Rolling out the pie crust and it's sticky, flour smelling texture was a rush!


Then I poured the mixture into the pie crust... I was hooked!






At the last minute I took the tiny bit of pie crust dough and made the familiar pumpkin head..


Then the baking filled my home with that aroma.. the one only a Pumpkin Pie with it's wonderful spices could do to fill our senses.  
Cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.


It was not easy for me to let my pie cool... After the day was over I slipped downstairs and cut a piece.. took it up with me, then had the first fork full.  Call me a glutton but I had two slices... with whipped topping!
Fall is almost here... bring out the Orange colors,,, the Fall Leaves and all the trimmings.

Mmmmm but I'd have enjoyed a slice of the pie. You put into words why I love pumpkin pie. I'll have mine without any topping, please.

You are so welcome for my TAKE ANYTHING button. I had fun making it.So nice to see it on your sidebar.:)

One of my favorites..Pumpkin Pie..Oh, my, I am sooo hungry for one.
It is still just too hot here for fall so my fallish things are still packed away. I will bring them out a little later in Sept. or even the first of Oct.
If you are ready, it is not too early to do your fall thing...go for it and have fun doing it.:))
