PUMPKIN PIEEEEEEEE!! It’s so weird when people don’t like pumpkin pie. I’m still friends with those kinds of people, but it’s hard. Pumpkin pie should be eaten all year round, but it really only feels normal during fall. When it’s freezing out. And it’s freezing here. So I’m hibernating and stuffing my face. And what’s better during the winter than pumpkin pie? OHHHH. Almond milk egg nog. Yep, that’s right. I found some at Whole Foods and loved it. Califia Farms has almond milk egg nog with ingredients that don’t bother me. So I added that to my pumpkin pie. Happy me.

OMG I saw Catching Fire this weekend. If you’ve never heard of The Hunger Games trilogy, you must not have a tv or know how to read books. Which is strange, since you’re reading this post. Either way, I saw the second movie from the Hunger Games trilogy and it was awesome. It was even better than the first one. And it was even more exciting because I hadn’t read the books in forever, so I really had no idea what was going on. Which kind of sucked since I had to pee the entire movie. Those blood curdling screams would get me every time. And I would jump…but thankfully I have a pretty strong bladder. I haven’t peed while doing double unders yet. That’s proof, right? So I didn’t pee during the screams. But I felt a lot of anxiety throughout the movie.

That just got weird.

Just FYI, I finished the entire first season of Homeland. Disappointed with the season finale, but I will go on. Meaning I’ve already watched the first two episodes of the second season. Do you think Carrie is actually crazy in real life? How is she so good with the crazy eyes? How does that just come normal. Creepy.

I wish I had more to tell you. But that is all. So I’m going to go eat more pie. While I watch Homeland.

    My 12 yo daughters say “this was heavenly!” We all thought this was amazing and the recipe will likely be used year-round!

    (At some point during the baking, we realized that the edges of the crust were darkening, so we put some aluminum foil just around the edges to save the crust from burning.)

    Where do you buy almond milk or coconut milk eggnog??? And where can you find almond flour – I have the worst luck with almond meal…

      i find mine at whole foods or sprouts

    I mus have done something wrong because this was pretty bad. The pie filling was really delicious but the crust was all wrong. Usually I’m a huge fan of gingerbread and I always love your recipes but this was a disaster! Which is super unfortunate because I was trying to prove to my family that paleo is delicious. Never matter, I think the issue was maybe the type of molasses. I think you should try to be a bit more specific with ingredients in the future.

    I know it’s the holidays and this is pie and all…and I’m sure it’s totally delicious, but there is sugar is most of those egg nogs, getting sneaky calling this Paleo guys, tisk tisk

    1. juli says:

      Well duh. Thankfully, I give you an option to make your own egg nog and judge how much sugar you put in it. Tisk tisk for not reading the recipe and commenting anyways.

      1. Elizabeth says:

        Heh, burn! How dare you give us a dessert recipe that has any sugar in it!! =)

    The end of Homeland: Season 2 is insane. So, get ready.

    PS: Sorry I didn’t comment about food…I love your blog 🙂

    I made this for Thanksgiving! Awesome!!!! Thanks!

    After reading that a number of people had issues with the crust I did a couple preventative measures: I put the dough in the freezer before hand while I made the filling (maybe 30 min at the most). I replaced the molasses with maple syrup 1:1, I added a bit of cream cheese, and I used butter straight from the fridge without microwaving (we’re dairy friendly obviously).

    I ended up having to leave the pie in the oven for over an hour since my purée was homemade and had a bit more liquid than store bought and still didn’t have the crust burn.

    Overall turned out great!

    I love your recipes, but I’m thinking Paleo baked goods just aren’t for me. =/ Tried making the health-bent egg nog, and it tasted nothing like it (I couldn’t get the egg yolks to stiffen up at all, no matter how long I beat them with an electric mixer). Added it to this recipe, baked for 55 minutes, and ended up with burnt crust (even on the bottom) and a filling that was “meh,” at best. :'( I’m a better cook than a baker, though, so I’m sure some of it was my fault, but I think I’m going to stay away from baked goods from now on.

    Incidentally, this was supposed to be a thank-you-Christmas-gift to our neighbor, who has been giving our daughter things because she knows we’re down on our luck. After tasting it, I decided it would be more of a punishment than a gift. xD

      sorry about that 🙁 that’s too bad

  9. Anna says:

    There seems to be a problem with this recipe. My crust was also burned on the bottom, sides, and exposed sections. It started burning at 20 minutes into the bake time and my pie was on the lowest rack. Also, I have never baked a pie at 375 degrees for 55 minutes EVER in my 30 years of baking. Something is not quite right with the molasses ratio in the crust and the temperature. Could you please fix this recipe before more people try to make this for family and friends? Total embarrasment on Christmas.

    1. juli says:

      sorry about that anna. i made it twice and my crust didn’t burn 🙁 i’ll try to remake that again in the future
