And as usual, it was that time of the year to make pumpkin cheesecake pie. Except this year, I could not find pumpkin puree. And I also did not have a roller. The can of cherry filing worked just fine when it came to crushing the ginger snaps for the crust! And the boys enjoyed helping:
And I forgot to buy heavy cream so I substituted it with a couple little cups of cherry yogurt. I also used pancake syrup instead of maple syrup. Wow...talk about super sweet!
The cheesecake pie didn't turn out as well either as what I would have liked. I may have to stock up on a couple cans of pumpkin puree on my next trip back to the US and be sure I use real maple syryp!
Unfortunately, Bobby had to get back to work on Thanksgiving night. Perhaps next year, we'll have a more traditional Thanksgiving and leave the cooking to someone else!
