Impossible Pumpkin Pie (from scratch)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Its funny how your tastes change when you get older and all grown up. When I was a child pumpkin pie was at the bottom of the list when it came to pies that I enjoyed.

I come from a long line of pie aficionados!  We love pie in our family and we always like to say that if it is in a crust we are the first in line to enjoy.  Although I wasn’t terribly fond of Pumpkin Pie growing up, I still ate it because well . . .  it was a pie!

I have come to really enjoy the flavour of pumpkin pie as an adult . . .  with its rich velvety texture and those warm baking spices  . . .

I think perhaps what did not endear me overly much to it as a child was the fact that the crust never quite baked properly and could often be a bit doughy rather than crisp. 
Impossible pies are not technically pies . . . but rather velvety smooth custard desserts that separate into a thin crust like bottom and a rich flavourful topping . . .  baked in a pie dish and shaped like a pie.
Normally they use a baking mix but this one doesn’t. It uses a mix of flour, baking powder and warm baking spices.  These are beaten into a rich pumpkin and egg custard mixture  . . .

then the whole thing is poured into a buttered pie dish and baked.  I quite like this version of pumpkin pie  . . .

Its rich and velvety  . . .  that custard is dense and filled with lovely flavours  . . .

Creamy pumpkin  . . .  cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, ginger  . . .

Its just plain delicious!  But what I like even more is its ease of creation . . .

You can’t ask for much easier than beat, pour and bake!
The hardest part is waiting  . . .  while the smell of those warm baking spices makes your whole home smell like, well . . . . Grandma’s Kitchen and Home Sweet Home!

It needs nothing more than a garnish of softly whipped cream to lift it to perfection!

Todd really loves this dessert.  He loves anything that even remotely resembles custard!  If this type of pumpkin pie isn’t your thing, I have a few others to choose from. 
You are now spoilt for choice!!  I highly recommend them all!
