Thanksgiving with a Twist - Apple Pumpkin Pie
What are we thankful for? We’re Canadians (yes, along with Drake, Dion and Don Cherry) and we get to dig into Thanksgiving treats earlier than our friends south of the border! While turkey, stuffing and sweet potatoes always have a place at our table, we remain super stoked for the main event…yes, pumpkin pie.
Like the relative who asks the awkward questions (“What’s happening with your hair?”), Canadian Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without a drool-worthy, rich and creamy pumpkin pie. So, do we have the secret to making sure your Thanksgiving feast is legendary? Why yes, we do. It’s Carnation® Evaporated Milk.
Yes, you read that right. Not only does Carnation Evaporated Milk make our pumpkin pies drool-worthy, but this century-old ingredient also elevates everything from savoury soups and casseroles to fantastic fudge and bars.
Ok, so we were challenged by Carnation to add our very own twist to pumpkin pie. Lisa guffawed when I suggested putting bacon in it. Then I suggested a popcorn topping. Naturally (and thankfully), she ignored me. Seems she didn’t want my help there so I stepped back and, armed her with Carnation Evaporated Milk, let her have at it.
Let me tell you, Lisa exceeded any hope/dream I could have for a delicious, clever and creative addition to the Thanksgiving table. This Apple Pumpkin Pie is a collision between two classic desserts, whereby a flaky crust is lined with perfectly caramelized apples, topped with a super creamy ‘n dreamy (thanks Carnation!) pumpkin pie filling and finished with a sweet, buttery crumble. Yes, Lisa has created something that all our family and friends will be thankful for!
