Your favorite NON-pie pumpkin dessert?
Love pumpkin, getting sick of pie already (and it's only 5 days after Thanksgiving, ruh-roh.) I'd really like to do some variations on the ol' pumpkin dessert thing for all the upcoming holiday parties this year. Any ideas from creative/experienced Chow minds? Recipes would be a huge plus as well. Thanks!
Here's the recipe:
2/3 cup packed pumpkin (i use canned)
1 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon - i go over a bit but not too much because you don't want to overwhelm the pumpkin
3/4 cup flour
heat oven to 350
mix all ingredients well. line jelly roll pan with wax paper. spray with pam. pour batter into pan. bake 12-15 minutes. will be somewhat sponge-y.
while hot, take clean dish towel and sprinkle with powdered sugar. flip cake onto towel. wrap edges around cake to cover as much as you can and then roll.
8 oz cream cheese
4 tbsp butter
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup powdered sugar
Beat until creamy. Unroll cake, spread filling. Reroll & sprinkle with powdered sugar. Chill until "set".
Slice and serve. Enjoy!
I love pumpkin ice cream/frozen custard. I don't have a recipe; my grandfather used to make it. I found this, though, which looks like a frozen custard base.
I don't know whether you have an ice cream maker or a paddle-dry ice-salt style i.c. freezer, but this recipe is one of those easy ones for the home freezer. That's how my grandfather used to do it.
