Yesterday's Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie, whose aromas filled the house with scents of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves was a bit of a bust. The flavor was definitely there and the streusel topping added lots of crunch, but the filling, rather than being creamy like a pumpkin custard, was a bit loose and watery. I give this recipe an overall 2 stars. In my opinion, it's difficult to top the good old favorite - just plain ol' pumpkin pie!H and I cut down a dead cedar tree over the weekend to split for kindling this winter. After H had it down and cut into rounds, we carted it over to the splitting stump. H was going to wait til tomorrow to split the rounds, but he couldn't wait - this fella just can't stay away from his wood pile!
