Tasty Variations of Holiday Staple: Pumpkin Pie


Pumpkin Pie

The fall season is now paired with an endless variety of pumpkin-themed indulgences. From coffee to cookies, pumpkin has certainly become a staple of the current season.

Pumpkin Pie in a Jar

This recipe is easy enough for little hands to participate in and only calls for a few ingredients that include ginger snaps, pumpkin puree, heavy cream, cream cheese, cinnamon, sugar and of course, butter.

This layered creation begins with the ginger snap crust as the bottom layer followed by the pumpkin layer (pumpkin puree, sugar and cinnamon) and the cream layer (heavy cream, cream cheese and sugar).

Chocolate-Swirled Pumpkin Pie

Anything is better with chocolate, right? The presentation for this treat is that of a typical pie and takes about two-and-a-half hours to make.

This recipe calls for some additional ingredients in comparison to the last, such as pie dough, eggs, cornstarch, cloves, salt and bittersweet chocolate. Rather than making the entire pumpkin filling with chocolate, the swirl adds a nice blend of the two that is not overwhelming. The result is a rich, chocolate infused classic pumpkin pie.

Pumpkin Pie with Pecan-Caramel Topping

A decision between many southern families is pumpkin versus pecan pie, so why not mix the two? This is a moderately difficult recipe, but the result is more than satisfying with toasted pecans baked right into the crust.

This creation is not for the un-seasoned baker and calls for more specific instruction, available here, along with the complete ingredients list. Trust us though, this one is worth it.

The holidays are a joyous time to enjoy delicious food with family and friends. Find more inspiration and complete recipes here, and have a happy holiday season, from our family to yours.
