It's ba...ack! Woo-hoo, Hood Pumpkin Eggnog sighting mid-October 2013

  • 7

It's like drinking pumpkin cheesecake. Though generally I can take pumpkin or leave it, this stuff, which is one of several varieties of holiday flavored eggnogs, is tremendously good. Fortunately, it's rich enough that I am happy with 4oz and usually wind up freezing some of it. I have also used it to make bread pudding using pumpkin quick bread, and mini-popovers with eggnog, thinly-sliced maple ham, and cheddar. I can't give any recipes because I was freestyling.

  1. greygarious, i never saw this post of yours or i would have wholeheartedly agreed with you as soon as you posted! it IS exactly like drinking pumpkin cheesecake -- a very rich cheesecake without too much sweetness but clean pumpkin flavor. a little dab'll do ya!

    and here, today, for the bonus round: pumpkin....milano cookies! http://www.junkfoodguy.com/2014/08/13...

    1. I like the way you think! I'll have to get some just to try a bread pudding with it. I also like the pumpkin spice coffee creamer that comes out about that same time.

      I've been making pumpkin cheesecake for Thanksgiving for a while now. For my family, it's a great switch from the pie - they love the cheesecake with caramel bourbon sauce!

        that caramel bourbon sauce sounds lovely!

          It is! I got the recipe for both the cheesecake and sauce from Epicurious. The second time I made the cheesecake, I left out the lemon and ramped up the spices a bit because it wasn't as spicy as I liked:

          I don't want to rush the seasons, but will admit I can't wait to make this again!

            wow -- great looking recipe. i'm wondering how a bit of goat cheese would fare? (saw a goat cheese cheesecake with blackberry sauce on pinterest today...).

      2. You could also make pumpkin French toast with this eggnog.

          I've done it with regular eggnog, but will have to give the pumpkin eggnog a try - thanks! How about bourbon maple syrup LOL!
