This Pumpkin Oreo Cream Cheese Pie is made with pumpkin and cream cheese and topped with an Oreo cream cheese swirl.
So today is my dad’s birthday.
He’s the big 82.
Which I always tell him thanks for living.
Not only because it’s nice to have him around.
But because the longer he lives the better it is for me. 😛
You know…genetically speaking. 😀
Don’t worry my dad has a good sense of humor, he knows I’m only half kidding.
Normally he gets a card from me.
Which I ordered on Etsy.
Unfortunately the shop uses the USPS.
It used to not be an unfortunate thing but as you know that process has currently been slowed down.
And according to the tracker my dad’s card has been sitting in Little Rock for 8 days.
Which it’s a card.
Not a package.
Just a card.
Once I do get it then it has to go from my rural post office to my parents rural post office.
Rural post offices if you did not know don’t have to deliver the mail daily to you.
They have three days.
Most of the time this isn’t an issue.
But if they have people get sick, since it’s a small office, and we are a large area…you don’t see mail.
And so if you time it right and get stuck with three days on my end and then three days on their end he won’t see a card for 6-7 days after I send it.
That was before the slow down of the mail.
I live 6 hours by car from them.
So it seems rather ridiculous. 🙂
Therefore this year it’s a birthday blog post!
Happiest of birthdays dad!
As we say every year after we sing happy birthday….and many more!
Also, I’m pretty sure my dad would want you to go buy my cookbook in honor of his birthday. 😀
It’s also Canadian Thanksgiving.
While I celebrate both, I only cook for one.
We have Chinese food for Canadian Thanksgiving.
But I always make a pumpkin pie.
But with a different twist each year.
This year it’s a Pumpkin Oreo Cream Cheese Pie.
A pie with a cream cheese base pumpkin pie instead of evaporated milk.
Then it’s topped with an Oreo cream cheese swirl layer.
And covered with a ridiculous amount of Oreo Whipped Cream.
Yes, you need that much whipped cream.
Whipped cream with Oreos in it is awesome.
This pie is also as ugly as you can get.
Orange and brown don’t make for an attractive color when mixed.
Hence, the extra Oreos and me throwing chocolate sauce on it.
Which that chocolate sauce really adds something so I highly suggest adding it.
I just used Hershey’s syrup but you can use whatever chocolate sauce you want.
