A Dollop of Pumpkin Pie
Ok…October is here, and it’s time to start eating pumpkin. Let’s get to it!
Mix this up, and stick it in the fridge for when your tummy is grumbling for something that tastes like fall.
1 15 oz. can of pure pumpkin
2 tablespoons sugar (or up to 1/4 cup, if you like it sweeter)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp allspice
1/8 tsp nutmeg
(or instead of the three spices above, use 1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice)
**Live dangerously and double the spice. This that “to taste” part I love to hate.
Eat it 3 ways:
1.) Put a bit in your coffee cup and fill with hot coffee. Add sugar and creamer as you normally would. PSL at home! And there will be a pumpkin treat at the bottom of your cup.
2.) Warm up a little in the micro (30 seconds or so), and spread the love on graham crackers – so yum.
3.) Mix a dollop with about a tablespoon of cream cheese (warm it up for easy mixin’) and eat with sliced apples or pears for a delicious fall snack.
Enjoy! Store mixture in the fridge for about a week.
I’m off to find a pumpkin muffin recipe. 🙂
