I'm going to get a jump start on the Autumn season I think. It is my favorite time of the year. I don't know what it is about Autumn, the pumpkin flavored everything, cinnamon flavors...or maybe it is the fact brown is my favorite color??? I think corporate America also is getting a bigger and bigger jump start on the Autumn season as well. Pumpkin Ale is all over the shelves at the grocery store. All kinds of brands, from the micro-brewers to the massive brewers.

Ingredients

2
9-inch pie crusts laid in pie pans, unbaked
1 Tbsp
all purpose flour
2
15 ounce cans of pumpkin puree
1/2 c
(1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
2 tsp
pure vanilla extract
1 c
sugar
1/2 c
sour cream
1 c
blue moon brand pumpkin ale (or whatever brand you like)
2 large
eggs
1 large
egg yolk
1 tsp
ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp
ground nutmeg
1 tsp
salt
chocolate syrup, for garnish (optinal)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 425'F Once oven reaches temperature reduce oven temperature to 350'F
2
In a large mixing bowl cream sugar together with sour cream, butter and egg yolk.
Slowly mix in pumpkin puree and eggs until completely incorporated.
3
Stir in vanilla, cinnamon, flour, salt and nutmeg.
Mix in pumpkin ale until completely incorporated.
4
Pour batter out into two unbaked pie crusts.
Garnish pies with chocolate syrup. I did it by making lines in the pie then dragging a design with a toothpick on the pie.
5
Use a pie shield, or fold aluminum foil over the outer edge of the pie crust so it doesn't burn when you bake pie.
Bake pies on center rack for 40-50 minutes until the center sets. Cool completely before serving.
