Its from scratch. Crust too, as you can see. It looks like the world’s biggest churro’s surrounding the pie.
It was a lot of work outside of the crust. Pumpkin puree, candied yams, syrup, heavy cream milk, eggs, sugar, nutmeg, salt and…grated ginger.
But my little Cake Boss said it “tasted better than the supermarket’s pumpkin pie”.
Does that mean I can keep my job?
To help my friend’s mother celebrate her 90th birthday tomorrow, my little Brooke and I threw together a homemade Upside Down Apple Pie from scratch… Darned if it doesn’t smell GOOOOD… Not bad for an old mechanic and a young lady, eh?

Now who knows how to keep little hands off the darn thing until tomorrow?
