The Great Pumpkin Pie Cook-Off! CooksIllus vs. Epicurious vs. Libby's

We made the 2008 CI recipe this year and it was pretty much a disaster. The crust was very difficult to work with, but very tasty and flaky. The filling was an incredible amount of work and although we followed ALL the instructions, the pie was not fully cooked. Supposedly it continues cooking after you take it out of the oven, but ours was soup when it was supposed to be cooked through. We put it in the oven again (for a total of twice the suggested cooking time) and it was STILL soup in the middle. The flavors in it were not quite right. Maybe too much ginger.

Full Moon Punch

I made this for my halloween party and it was a big hit. I had to make the velvet falernum myself but it was worth it. The falernum and the punch were both really unusual and delicious.
