Jill’s Pumpkin Pie
Note: For custard style pies I have learned that pre-baking crust partially will give you a nice flaky crust on the bottom. You may also need to cover crust half way through baking pie, to keep from over browning. A little extra effort, but so worth it!
Pie Crust (Makes 2 – 10” deep-dish pie crusts)

Ingredients:

3 – cups flour, plus a bit more for rolling
½ – teaspoon salt
1 – tablespoon sugar
¾ – lb. salted butter, chilled and cut into pieces, plus a little more softened for buttering pan and foil
1 – egg, beaten
1 – teaspoon cider vinegar or lemon juice *I use half of each.
2 – tablespoons cream
1 – ice cube

Preparation:

1 – Pre-heat oven to 450°.
2 – In mixer using pastry blender, mix flour, salt & sugar.
3 – In small dish, beat eggs. Add vinegar and cream and mix well. Add ice cube to mixture to keep cold, and allow ice to melt almost all the way.
4 – Add chilled butter to flour mixture until incorporated.
5 – Slowly drizzle in egg mixture.
6 – Remove dough from mixer with floured hands, shape into ball and cut in half.
7 – Press dough into disk shape with your hands and place dough onto floured parchment. Top dough with additional floured parchment and roll out.
8 – Transfer dough to buttered pie pan carefully. Press lightly into pan, crimp edges and pierce the dough randomly with a fine pronged fork, about 8 times.
9 – Chill the piecrust for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
10 – Lightly butter foil and place buttered side down on top of piecrust, shaping foil in piecrust shape without disturbing edges. Fill foiled crust at least half way up with dried beans, rice or pie weights.
11 – Place in 450° pre-heated oven and bake for 25 minutes.
Remove foiled piecrust from oven and remove foil gently. Return piecrust to oven to allow the bottom to brown, about another 10 minutes.
12 – Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before filling.

Pumpkin Pie Filling
A few extra ingredients for a richer, creamer filling. Enjoy.

Ingredients:

3 – eggs
1¼ – cup dark, pure cane brown sugar, packed
½ – cup sour cream
½ – cup heavy cream
¼ – cup pure maple syrup
1 – teaspoon vanilla
1 – tablespoon cinnamon
1 – teaspoon ginger
1 – teaspoon allspice
4 – cups pureed pumpkin or canned pumpkin
*Yams or butternut squash can be used too.

Preparation:

1 – In mixer, beat eggs. Add remaining ingredients in order with mixer running, stopping to scrape the bottom occasionally. Mix until well incorporated.
2 – Pour pumpkin mixture into prepared piecrust.
3 – Bake at 350° for 75 minutes. Increase heat to 450° and bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes.
4 – Remove pie from oven and allow to cool for 2 hours before serving.

So Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2020! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

BUFFALO CARBONARA
This dish can often be overwhelmed with garlic and the fatty smokiness of traditional bacon. I have held a light hand on the garlic and the lean, meaty flavor of the Bison Bacon will compliment this dish instead of overpower. A perfect dish for springtime celebrations or casual dinners! (Serves 4)

Ingredients:

Wild Idea Buffalo 10 oz. Uncured Smoked Buffalo Bacon, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 eggs + 1 yolk, room temperature
½ lemon, juiced & warmed
1½ to 2 cups Parmesan or Pecorino Romano, grated
1 teaspoon black pepper +
1 pound spaghetti, cooked al dente
1 to 2 cups reserved pasta water
*optional: asparagus tips or frozen peas, cooked al dente
salt to taste

Preparation:

1) Prepare pasta al dente, reserving 2 cups pasta liquid. Rinse pasta and allow to drain.
2) In heavy, large sauté pan over medium high heat, heat oil. Add bacon and brown until crispy, tossing occasionally about 5minutes. Add garlic to bacon a couple of minutes before bacon is done.
3) Remove bacon/garlic from pan and set aside.
4) Place the two eggs in their shell in a cup of boiling water that is removed from heat source. Allow eggs to rest in water for one minute. Remove eggs and crack into blender along with other egg yolk. Coddled eggs may be a little cloudy, which is ok. Whip eggs in blender.
5) Add the warmed lemon juice and 1½ cups grated cheese and pepper to blender and pulse. Add more cheese if desired.
6) In sauté pan that bacon was browned in add 1 cup of the reserved pasta water and bring to a boil. Add pasta to the water and cover for 1 minute or until pasta is hot. Check pasta occasionally, adding more water if needed. Toss pasta gently. Remove pan from heat and drain excess water from pan.
7) Drizzle egg & cheese mixture over hot pasta tossing as you drizzle. Add bacon and hot vegetables and toss again.
8) Season to taste and garnish with shaved Parmesan or Pecorino.
