Ingredients
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Baking time: 1 hour
Chilling time: 8 hours

Cooking spray
1 loaf (16 ounces) French bread, cut into 20 slices
1 block (8 ounces) fat-free cream cheese, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup sugar-free, maple-flavored syrup
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions
Yield: 12 servings
Serving size: 1 slice (approximately 3 inches x 3.25 inches)

1 – Coat a 9″ x 13″ baking dish with cooking spray. Layer 10 slices of bread in the bottom of the baking dish (you may need to cut some slices to fit). Top evenly with cream cheese slices, then remaining bread slices.

One of America’s Favorites – Pumpkin Pie

October 24, 2022 at 6:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | 2 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

A slice of pumpkin pie

Pumpkin pie is a dessert pie with a spiced, pumpkin-based custard filling. The pumpkin and pumpkin pie are both a symbol of harvest time, and pumpkin pie is generally eaten during the fall and early winter. In the United States and Canada it is usually prepared for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and other occasions when pumpkin is in season.

The pie’s filling ranges in color from orange to brown and is baked in a single pie shell, usually without a top crust. The pie is generally flavored with a spice mixture known as pumpkin pie spice, which is made using spices such as ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice. The pie is usually prepared with canned pumpkin, but fresh-cooked pumpkin can be used.

Pies made from pumpkins typically use pie pumpkins, also known as sugar pumpkins, which measure about 6 to 8 inches in diameter, approximately the size of a large grapefruit. They are considerably smaller than the typically larger varieties used to carve jack o’lanterns, contain significantly less pulp, and have a less stringy texture. The flesh is cooked until soft and puréed before being blended with the other ingredients.

Pumpkin pie filling being prepared

The pulp is mixed with eggs, evaporated or sweetened condensed milk, sugar, and a spice mixture called pumpkin pie spice. This typically includes cinnamon, powdered ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. Allspice is also commonly used and can replace the clove and nutmeg, as its flavor is similar to both combined. Cardamom and vanilla are also sometimes used as batter spices. The pie is then baked in a pie shell and sometimes topped with whipped cream. Similar pies are made with butternut squash or sweet potato fillings.

The pie is often made from canned pumpkin, which is prepared mainly from varieties of Cucurbita pepo and Cucurbita maxima. Packaged pumpkin pie filling with spices included is also used. A December 1988 report by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration found that canned pumpkin products sometimes have sweet squash mixed in with the pumpkin “to obtain the same texture that is well-liked by consumers.”

Many modern companies produce seasonal pumpkin-pie-flavored products such as candy, cheesecake, coffee, ice cream, french toast, waffles and pancakes, and many breweries produce a seasonal pumpkin ale or beer; these are generally not flavored with pumpkins, but rather pumpkin pie spices. Commercially made pumpkin pie mix is made from Cucurbita pepo, Cucurbita maxima and Cucurbita moschata. (Libby’s pumpkin pie mix uses the Select Dickinson Pumpkin variety of C. moschata for its canned pumpkins.)

A slice of homemade pumpkin pie with whipped cream

The pumpkin is native to North America. The pumpkin was an early export to France; from there it was introduced to Tudor England, and the flesh of the “pompion” was quickly accepted as pie filling. During the seventeenth century, pumpkin pie recipes could be found in English cookbooks, such as Hannah Woolley’s The Gentlewoman’s Companion (1675). Pumpkin “pies” made by early American colonists were more likely to be a savory soup made and served in a pumpkin than a sweet custard in a crust. Pumpkins were also stewed and made into ale by colonists. An early appearance of a more modern, custard-like pumpkin pie was in American Cookery, a cookbook published in 1796. It used a sweet custard filling in a pie crust, with spices similar to the ones used today.

It was not until the early nineteenth century that the recipes appeared in Canadian and American cookbooks or that pumpkin pie became a common addition to the Thanksgiving dinner. The Pilgrims brought the pumpkin pie back to New England, while the English method of cooking the pumpkin took a different course. In the 19th century, the English pumpkin pie was prepared by stuffing the pumpkin with apples, spices, and sugar and then baking it whole. In the United States after the Civil War, the pumpkin pie was resisted in Southern states as a symbol of Yankee culture imposed on the South, where there was no tradition of eating pumpkin pie. Many Southern cooks instead made sweet potato pie, or added bourbon and pecans to give the pumpkin pie a Southern touch.

Today, throughout much of Canada and the United States, it is traditional to serve pumpkin pie after Thanksgiving dinner.

Pumpkin pies were discouraged from Thanksgiving dinners in the United States in 1947 as part of a voluntary egg rationing campaign promoted by the Truman Administration, mainly because of the eggs used in the recipe. This was a part of President Truman’s Citizen’s Food Committee task force, designed to ration food consumption in the United States in hopes to provide more foreign food assistance to Europe post World War II. Part of the campaign included an “Egg-less & Poultry-less Thursday”, which began in October 1947, and with Thanksgiving Day always occurring on a Thursday, there was a considerable backlash among American consumers against this. Truman was true to his word, and no pumpkin pie was served at the White House for Thanksgiving in 1947.

The world’s largest pumpkin pie was made in New Bremen, Ohio, at the New Bremen Pumpkinfest on September 25, 2010. The pie consisted of 1,212 pounds of canned pumpkin, 109 US gallons of evaporated milk, 2,796 eggs, 7 lb of salt, 14+1⁄2 lb of cinnamon, and 525 lb of sugar. The final pie weighed 3,699 lb and measured 20 ft in diameter.

One-Bowl Monster Cookies
If you thought it wasn’t possible to make healthier monster cookies, think again. These peanut butter, oatmeal, chocolate chip and M&M cookies have less butter and sugar than traditional recipes, but they have just as much flavor and tenderness, thanks to more peanut butter. Even better, they’re made in one bowl for easy cleanup……

Spiced Pumpkin Cookies
The deep flavors of molasses, cinnamon, ginger, allspice and nutmeg make these wholesome pumpkin cookies delicious without the addition of butter–and they lend themselves beautifully to the inclusion of whole-wheat flour. They are also the perfect texture for a sandwich cookie–fill them with a slightly sweetened cream cheese frosting……

Flourless Chocolate Cookies
These flourless cookies get their volume from whipped egg whites (like a meringue) instead of grains, making them gluten-free and melt-in-your-mouth delicious. A chocolate chip in each bite adds to the rich chocolate flavor……
