Sweet Melissa Sundays – Ginger Custard Pumpkin Pie

Ginger Custard Pumpkin Pie

Guess what time it is? Yes, time for more pumpkin! And really, who can get enough pumpkin pie?? This round, it’s a Ginger Custard Pumpkin Pie, by Melissa Murphy. With all these variations, I’ve definitely changed my feelings on pumpkin pie. I was never a huge fan, but when you pair it with rich Fall flavors such as caramel, ginger or maple, it can change anybody’s mind!

Melissa’s recipe calls for a 10″ pie plate, but all I had was a 9″, so I obviously wound up with extra filling. And what am I to do with all that, but make four little custard cups for later! Perfect for a quick snack after the pie is all gone! 🙂

What BEAUTIFUL photos you have! I know this pie is delicious because I made it and tried it, but even if I hadn’t tried it, I’d KNOW it was a winner based on your pics!

I’m with you Jessica – never been a huge pumpkin pie person, but all this variations I’ve been making have converted me 🙂 Your pie is gorgeous! I gave my pie away so didn’t get a shot of a slice, but yours looks perfect.

I’m so upset I didn’t attempt this as yours looks picture perfect. Now I know what my baking project is going to be for next weekend.

Your pie looks terrific! I like pumpkin pie to begin with, but it’s even better with the addition of caramel or ginger.

Lovely photos! Glad this pie made you a convert. It always makes me sad when people don’t like a certain holiday ‘staple.’ Welcome to the pumpkin pie lovers club 😉
