Thanksgiving in Canada

Next Monday is Thanksgiving in Canada. Thanksgiving is a holiday where Canadians give thanks for all the things in their lives, like family, having a home, and things like that. It’s a day when families get together and usually eat a big turkey dinner. One of my favourite parts of Thanksgiving is a dessert called Pumpkin pie. So, to share, I thought I’d give you all the recipe for pumpkin pie and you can try at home.

Pumpkin Pie

Jason’s Pumpkin Pie

2 Cups Pumpkin (cooked)
2 Eggs
2/3 Cup Brown Sugar
1 1/4 Cup Milk
2 Tbsp Butter
2 Tsp Maple Syrup
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1/4 Tsp Clove spice
1/2 Tsp Nutmeg
1/4 Tsp Ginger
1 Cooked Pie Crust

1. Measure 2 cups of cooked pumpkin (without the skin) into a bowl and add 2 Tbsp of butter and mix.

2. In another bowl, beat the eggs and add brown sugar, milk, salt, pepper, maple syrup, and spices.

3. Add the pumpkin mixture to the egg mixture and mix well.

4. Pour this into the pie shell and cook at 180 C for 40 minutes, or until the pumpkin is firm.

5. Cool and serve. Best served with whipped cream.

There, that should give you a very good dessert.

Oh, by the way, a Tbsp is a Tablespoon or a 15 mL spoon and a Tsp is a Teaspoon or a 5 mL spoon.

Have fun.
