MCDONALD’S PUMPKIN & CREAM PIE

Welcome to day 29 of Tag Sale Tastes’ Pumpkinpalooza!

Today I tried a McDonald’s Pumpkin & Cream Pie.  This little hand pie intrigued me.  I saw a sign at the drive through that said simply “try our new pumpkin & cream pies.”  It looked as if it had been printed on someone’s computer.  No graphics, no logo, just a black and white mandate to try the pumpkin & cream pie.  So I did.

I assumed it was a fried pie, but the generic box it came in said the pie was “baked to perfection.”

And here is the perfect little pie:

The filling consists of a pumpkin layer and a cream cheese (of sorts) layer:

As best I can tell, this signature pie is new this year, and I think it may only be available in select markets.  If you happen to see a sign saying “try our new pumpkin & cream pie,” do so. This little pie was surprisingly delicious.  The two layers combined to produce a wonderful pumpkin cheesecake-like filling surrounded by tender flaky crust.  It was lightly spiced and not overly sweet.  I was sad when it was gone.  It was 89 cents worth of pumpkin joy.

  2. This post makes me remember the days when McD’s sold FRIED apple pies and they were delicious. When they started baking them to make them healthier, I gave up. Maybe, just maybe, I’ll give these a try even though they are baked. There just might be hope yet.

I'd love to hear from you!
