I can't believe that Thanksgiving is one week away. A lot of food is going to be cooked, baked and shared with friends and families. This holiday reminds me of the Thai New Year when everyone goes back to their hometown to celebrate the holiday with family and friends. We also have a ton of food and fully loaded to celebrate. This shows that in every part of the world we share a common thing that is the love of food.
Even though there will be so many different kinds of food on the table, I always save some room for dessert. I am a big fan of the pies, tarts, and quiches. And one of my favorite things to looking forward at the end of the night of celebration is pumpkin pie.
I spent the majority of my awesome weekend testing pumpkin pie recipes. I was tasting this recipe no less than 3 times to make sure it comes out right because this is my second time making pumpkin pie. This pumpkin pie recipe is bursting with flavor. It’s rich, nutty, a little sour from apple cider, and delicious with a homemade pie crust with the salted caramel and pecans on the bottom. This pie will make everyone at your party say "WOW".
This pie was a little challenging to me because when it comes to pumpkin pie, the standards are high. With this recipe I try to create two-layers with salted apple cider caramel + pecans on the bottom and a pumpkin filling on the top. Lucky me I tested only twice and the result came perfect. This filling is super rich tasting like a custard with a light pumpkin spice flavor, and surprise from the pecans and salted apple cider caramel on the bottom.
The pie crust is the key to the great pumpkin pie! My homemade pie crust uses champagne vinegar which contains less water to create a tenderness while the flakiness still remains, plus the crust is still crunchy even having been baked with the pumpkin filling. You can get ready for ae homemade pumpkin pie that is unique right from your oven. This technique is from Rose Levy Beranbaum; she uses apple cider vinegar. I picked the Champagne vinegar because I love a super crunchy, dense and flaky pie, it contains less water than apple cider vinegar.

"You love someone, you open yourself up to suffering, that's the sad truth. Maybe they'll break your heart, maybe you'll break their heart and never be able to look at yourself in the same way. Those are the risks. That's the burden.Like wings, they have weight, we feel that weight on our backs, but they are a burden that lifts us. Burdens which allow us" Bones
