Happy Thanksgiving !
So I am not American and I have come to Pumpkin Pie rather late in life. However now that I have my family have all embraced it with open arms. I have to admit to tweaking the recipe a bit.Mine is more influenced by the Asian use of pumpkin in deserts. Think of pumpkin cheese cake and pumpkin pannacotta. I can't say I'm keen on the cinnamon in the original pie so I have omitted that and I make the filling more like an egg tart with my preferred Pumpkin being a butternut squash which is not really a pumpkin at all! Anyhow then instead of marshmallows on the top and I know that even that is not traditional, I use white chocolate buttons or as in my photo white chocolate maltesers. Yummy!
Also I would just like to say hello to any new viewers out there whom I met at the fair on Sunday. Hello! It was a lovely day and very successful. Sadly that is my last fair in Hong Kong but keep a look out for my partner in crime Nicola from Rice Bowl Republic who will be selling her lovely cards and wrapping papers at the Island School fair( my old School) on December 3rd I think it is.
