Pumpkin Ice Cream

Ingredients :
1 can pumpkin pie filling
1 cup heavy cream
1 1/4 cups simple syrup (1 part water to 1 part sugar)
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
Preparation :
In a bowl, mix together all of the ingredients. Pour the mixture into an electric ice-cream maker. Freeze for 20 minutes, or follow the instructions for your ice cream machine. Makes 1 quart (4 cups) 

Pumpkin Empanadas:

~ 16 oz pumpkin (canned or fresh)
~ 1 C sugar
~ 2 tsp. cinnamon
~ 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
~ 1/2 tsp. ginger
~ 1/2 tsp. anise
~ 1/4 tsp. cloves

~ 2 C flour
~ 1 tsp. salt
~ 1 tsp. baking powder
~ 1/3 C shortening
~ 1/2 C hot water
~ 1 tsp. anise seed (crushed)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the filling ingredients in a sauce pan, and cook for about 20 minutes over medium heat (stirring frequently). Set aside and make the dough.

Mix the first three ingredients for the dough in a bowl, then cut in little pieces of shortening until all of it is used up. In boiling water, add the anise seed and cook for a few minutes. Then slowly add the anise water to the flour mixture, mixing with a fork. Knead the dough for a bit, then pinch off 14 to 16 small dough balls (use all the dough).

Roll out each ball on a floured surface (medium thickness), into a 3 1/2" circle. Sppon equal amounts of the pumpkin filling into the center of the dough circles, using all of the pumpkin mixture. Fold the circles in half, and pierce the edges to make a good seal (using the fork works well). Brush the top of each empanada with a beaten egg. Place on ungreased cookie sheet (or use some non-stick spray if you wish), and bake for 30 minutes or until a golden brown.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds / Salt

When you are cleaning your pumpkin before carving the SpookMaster design, save the seeds in a bowl. Do not wash your seeds prior to roasting. Washing can remove some of the flavor.

Remove the seeds from the strings and place a single layer on a cookie sheet. Try and make an even layer, the less they lay on each other, the better they can bake.

Add salt to taste and bake at 250 degrees until dry, stirring occasionally. Bake for about 15 to 30 minutes or until the start to turn a very light gold.

Sweet and Spicy Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds
5 tablespoons - Sugar
1/4 teaspoon - Salt
1/4 teaspoon - Ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon - Ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon - Ground ginger
Pinch - Cayenne pepper
1-1/4 tablespoons - Peanut oil

When you are cleaning your pumpkin before carving the SpookMaster design, save the seeds in a bowl. Do not wash your seeds prior to roasting. Washing can remove some of the flavor.

Remove the seeds from the strings and place a single layer on a cookie sheet. Try and make an even layer, the less they lay on each other, the better they can bake.

Add salt to taste and bake at 250 degrees until dry, stirring occasionally. Bake for about 15 to 30 minutes or until the start to turn a very light gold.

In a medium bowl combine 3 tablespoons of the sugar and the salt, cumin, cinnamon, ginger, and cayenne.

Heat peanut oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add pumpkin seeds (after they are baked) and 2 tablespoons sugar. Cook until sugar melts and the pumpkin seeds begin to caramelize, about 45 to 60 seconds.

Transfer pumpkin seeds to bowl with spices and stir well to coat. Let cool.

You can store the seeds in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

Pumpkin Bread Pudding

Serving Size: 6 pumpkin loafers.

6 plain croissants, cubed and toasted
1 lb pumpkin puree
1 cup milk
1/2 cup cream
1/8 cup molasses
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar

Pre-heat oven to 350° F. Combine all ingredients, adding bread last. Sprinkle a little brown sugar and butter on top and bake, uncovered for 15 minutes. Serve warm or chilled.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Serving Size: 6 pumpkin heads.

2 cups Bisquick
2 tablespoons Brown sugar - packed
2 teaspoons Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Allspice
1 1/2 cups Evaporated milk
1/2 cup Solid pack pumpkin
2 tbs Vegetable oil
2 Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla

In a large mixing bowl, combine the bisquick, sugar, cinnamon and allspice. Add the evaporated milk, pumpkin, oil, eggs, and vanilla; beat until smooth. For each pancake, pour 1/4 to 1/2 cup batter (depending on size you want) onto a heated, lightly greased griddle. Cook until the top is bubbly and edges are dry. Turn pancakes; cook until golden. Keep warm. Serve with syrup or honey.


  3/4 cup almond flour
   2 teaspoons oat flour
   2/3 cup canned pumpkin
   2 eggs
   1/4 cup sweet almond oil (or other vegetable oil)
   2 teaspoons Brown Sugar Twin®
   3/4 cup Splenda®
   1/2 teaspoon baking powder
   1/2 teaspoon salt
   1 teaspoon cinnamon
   1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
   1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
   1/4 teaspoon ginger
   1 teaspoon vanilla extract
   1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  Preheat oven to 350°F.

  In bowl beat eggs with Brown Sugar Twin. Add vanilla extract and canned pumpkin, mixing well after each. Set aside. In a separate bowl, mix almond flour, baking powder, oat flour, salt, Splenda, and spices till well mixed. Pour egg/pumpkin mixture into dry ingredients and be careful to mix extremely well. Pockets of unmixed batter will result in dry, lumpy bubbles in the finished bars. Add chopped nuts and mix again to distribute well. Pour into baking dish that's been greased with butter or PAM. For thin bars, use a 12"x8" pan; for thicker bars,
an 8"x8" does nicely. Pyrex dishes bake these bars more effectively than metal baking pans, so if you use metal, watch your bars more closely.

  Bake at 350°F for 25-30 minutes for rectangular pan, and 30-40 minutes for square pan. Cool in pan for 5-10 minutes before removing, then cut in squares and enjoy! These bars can be frosted when cool as well.

Cream Cheese Frosting

   1  8-oz package cream cheese at room temperature
   2 teaspoons vanilla extract
   1 teaspoon butter flavor extract
   3 pkts Splenda®
   1 teaspoon Brown Sugar Twin®
   sprinkle of cinnamon

  Mix all ingredients well. For a more creamy (and prettier) frosting, mix with electric mixer till whipped. A drop
of yellow food color is nice, but optional. Spread on pumpkin bars.

  Makes 12 squares. 3 carbs per square (including frosting.)

Creamy Pumpkin Dip

Dip Ingredients:
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup LAND O LAKES® Sour Cream
2 cups powdered sugar
1 (15-ounce) can cooked pumpkin
1 tablespoon orange juice concentrate
