It may look like pie but it's definitely bread.(pumpkin bread) Perfect for the holidays. When I think of the holidays,I think of pumpkin pie.But just plain pumpkin pie can get a little boring year after year. So I try to think of ways to spice it up. This year  came up with a fun way to serve Pumpkin bread and so...  Pumpkin Pie Bread was created. Do you want to learn how to make it? It's as easy as pie  ;)

BAKING TIPS (I have learned a few tips over the years)

*For pies,cover the edge of the crust with strips of foil for about half of the baking time.
* Check what your baking a few min. before the time it says on the recipe. I find that most of the time it's ready and this way ,I don't over bake.
*Fluff your flour a little so you can get a more consistent measurement each time.
*I was told by a cake baker to lower the suggested baking heat by 25 degrees. I have had good results. (but don't do that with this recipe, I already did it. Lol )
*If you are worried about the bottom burning you can put a piece of foil or a cookie sheet on the rack below for half of the baking time.
*When you have leftover freshly made whipped cream , you can make dollops on a wax paper and freeze for later use.

I got that one from some pie company in Jullian CA, but I also have a set that I got from Marie Callenders. it has a pie server and a pie cutter.It just gets pushed into the pie and then you have 5 perfectly cut slices. I will try to post a pic of that real soon. It is really cool.
you are such a baker!! :D
