Yet again this year I’m at university for Halloween, and I must admit that I truly miss American Halloween’s (we go full out) and I look forward to being able to celebrate it again. For now however I’m using some amazing memories I have of it to keep my spirit alive. One of those being making/ having pumpkin pie and this is what kick starts the holiday season for me. So my family was making their way to university to visit me and what better way to surprise them then to make them a pie. I had to use some substitution and use different equipment then what Im use to but I got great reviews.
