pumpkin pie

I love pumpkin pie and look forward all year to Pumpkin Pie Season. It must be genetic, as pumpkin pie was my dad's favorite dessert as well.

Yesterday morning, I made a Pumpkin Custard Pie using Stonewall Kitchen's Maple Pumpkin Butter:

I bought my jar at Redwood Bay in Bath, which carries a fab selection of American food and kitchen products, including some of my favorites from Barefoot Contessa and Stonewall Kitchen.

This pie is quite different from my usual pumpkin pie. It has a silkier texture, more like a custard tart, and a milder pumpkin flavor. G says he prefers it to the traditional version, and I think it makes a nice change.

I discovered Stonewall Kitchen products while living in Williamstown, Massachusetts. The company itself is based in York, Maine, and one of these days I hope to visit their Headquarters and Cooking School:

In the meantime, I'd love to try their Pumpkin Whoopie Pie Mix...

but Redwood Bay only has two left in stock, and I don't think we'll make it back to Bath in time!


  1. Redwood Bay is always on my list of places to go in Bath.And we have a grown up break there later this month, so I'll keep my eyes open for you!

  2. Looks delicious...I have pumpkin bread in the oven right now, fingers crossed it's edible!

  3. oooh I remember visiting the Stonewall kitchen shop in Kittery -- it was fantastic! the pie looks delicious, we had pumpkin soup yesterday.

  4. Yum!

    I love Stonewall Kitchen!

  5. Do you know I have learnt more about my home town through the blog world than I have living here for 30 years!
    I will have to hotfoot it to Redwood Bay and investigate their goods!
    Ironically the shop took over from Papyrus Stationers where I used to work.
    I have never really tried Pumpkin to eat..I normally favour butternut squash.. I will have to remedy that!

  6. Pumkin pie made with maple pumpkin butter is truely scrumptious!

  7. Looks delicious - I hope to make a pumpkin pie this weekend, it's one of my favourites!

    And I like your pastry - it looks gorgeously handmade!

  8. That pie looks absolutely delicious. What a great idea!

  9. I wish I'd known, I was in Bath last week and could have got you some! Looks very tasty, I love pumpkin pie too

  10. I have never had the courage to try pumpkin pie - it sounds as though it should be salty even though I know it must be sweet.

  11. Oh my goodness, the Whoopie Pie sounds incredible. I will have to make sure I visit this place next time I get to Bath.

    I have never eaten pumpkin pie! I would like to try it though, do you have a recipe/book suggestion that you would particularly recommend for a first timer?
