I've been missing fall a lot lately. As one could imagine, living in Miami means perpetual sunshine and humidity, so I don't get the usual leaves changing colors or pumpkins on every front porch. I decided to make a cheesecake pumpkin pie (go big or go home), and it reminded me of Sweeney Todd and Waitress. So this is what I have to contribute to the world today.
Suck it, Betty Crocker.
The two examples of joyous pie-making that I could think of were of Mrs. Lovett and Keri Russell. I almost made it a trifecta with Jason Biggs in American Pie, but I didn't want to soil my first pie-making experience with thoughts of Biggs' rump on my pie. Hopefully, my first pie doesn't taste horrible. To celebrate, I thought we'd look at Lovett and Russel talking about pies!
