Pumpkin Pie

December 24, 2011 § Leave a comment

Making pumpkin pie has been on the to-do list for quite some time. But, sometimes life gets in the way and I’ve been trying to catch-up on other things. With a few days off for Christmas, I’ve set aside some time to tackle projects around the apartment. So here it is, pumpkin pie.

For the crust: I used the recipe mentioned here.

For the pumpkin filling:

1 jar of Stonewall Pumpkin Pie Filling
4 oz. heavy cream
4 oz. milk
3 eggs

Combine pumpkin filling, cream, and milk in pan and heat. Stir.
Beat eggs until smooth and combine eggs mixture with pumpkin mixture.
Pour mixture onto pie crust. Bake 15 minutes at 400°, then 40 minutes at 350°.


Happy Holidays!

Mini Deep Dish Pizza

December 14, 2011 § Leave a comment

This is a really simple recipe that only took about 20 minutes from start to finish, 15 minutes of which was the bake time. I used Pillsbury pizza dough and divided it into 12 parts. Using a muffin pan, fill each cup with one round dough. Spoon 1 tablespoon of marinara sauce into each cup. Add toppings. I used pepperonis and tomatoes this time. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese. Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until crusts turn golden brown.

Every year, it feels like time is passing by faster and faster. Happy December 1st.
Looking forward to some Christmas shopping, Holiday Party planning, and decorating this weekend. Made gingersnaps tonight and my apartment is starting to feel festive.
