Tuesdays With Dorie – Caramel Pumpkin Pie

by Jessica on October 19, 2010

Caramel Pumpkin Pie

Last night, the Texas Rangers shutout the NY Yankees to win Game 3 of the ALCS and (not to toot my own horn, but) I made a gorgeous pie… it must be fate.

The Pie Gods were definitely looking over me while I made this. The crust was buttery and flaky, the filling spicy, smooth and rich. I even ate a piece for breakfast this morning. Yes, breakfast… forget whole grains and protein. It’s more fun to sabotage the diet. And hey, pumpkin has protein in it. 🙂

A big ‘thank you’ to Janell of Mortensen Family Memoirs for hostessing this week’s TWD. It was incredible, Janell!! To get the recipe for this amazing pie, click over to her blog, and don’t forget about those other Caramel Pumpkin Pies… you can find links to them here.

Beautiful Job!!! I love your pie, and yours came out so much lighter than mine!!

Jessica, your pie looks SOOO beautiful! Thanks for baking along with me this week. I’m glad you liked the pie.

You DO make a beautiful pie. Wasn’t this good. I loved how the caramel/rum enhanced the pumpkin flavor. YUM!!

Your pie is gorgeous! I love the colour–mine was too dark, from the caramel I guess. The leaves are a pretty touch, along with the leaf plate. Very seasonal!

I ate my pie for breakfast too Jessica 🙂 Your pie does look stunning, I especially love the way you jazzed up the crust.

Oh, and I’m right there cheering for the Rangers with you. More because I hate the Yankees, but nonetheless rooting for them!

That pie really does look perfect! Love the leaves in the middle.

Those leaf-shaped cut-outs are adorable! Nice touch.
Pumpkin does contain protein + it’s a vegetable. So by default, eating a slice of pie is acceptable any time of day. :~)

It must be fate girl, cuz this is one mighty fine lookin pie!

Your caramel pumpkin pie looks wonderful; love the extra touch you’ve added with the leaves. Perfect epitome of Fall. Well done!

Jessica, your photos are so beautiful. Dang … your whole BLOG is beautiful. I don’t much care for pumpkin pie, but this makes me want to bake one. (I’m glad I have this book!)

I am certainly no baker, but does this recipe make the caramel or do you buy it and melt it. Caramel is not in the ingredients.


16 Jessica November 16, 2010 at 10:05 pm

Hi Judy! For this pie, you make the caramel. Only the ‘Tuesdays With Dorie’ hostess for the week posts the recipe, so you can find it in it’s complete form on Janell’s blog here: http://lkmortensenfamily.blogspot.com/2010/10/tuesdays-with-dorie-caramel-pumpkin-pie.html

Thanks for visiting – hope to see you again! 🙂

Gorgeous! I plan to make this for tomorrow. Did you really prebake the crust per the recipe? I feel like prebaking makes my pie crust too hard. Thanks!


18 Jessica November 24, 2010 at 1:43 pm

Hi Christina! Yes, I blind baked it – but not as long as was called for. My oven likes to burn things! 🙂
