So my guess is that I started writing this in 2009 (since it says Melody is 2) and left it in draft until last November when I was going to post it (says the timestamp) and then forgot…below is the post that I started…and then below that is what I added.
Okay, haven’t had this one yet either but I hope this is helpful if someone is looking for a recipe. If Melody (at age 2) can make it, so can you!
I am actually not sure if we are doing this one this year…might change things up. And when I make it again next time I really want to try using an real pumpkin instead of canned. Does anyone know if you can taste a difference?
I guess 2009 was a little crazy to blog because Emily was only 6 months old at the time, and I have no excuse for last year, but I did some digging and found these. Seriously, Melody basically made this pie when she was 2. I think all I did was measure the ingredients, put it in the oven, and take it out of the oven. She did the mixing and pouring (with some help). I’m not even sure if this is the PUMPKIN PIE recipe we followed since it’s been so long, but I know we didn’t use cloves.
I just showed Melody the photos from 2009 and she said, “That looks yummy, Mommy, I want to make some more.”
