This weekend I had the blessing of speaking at the ladies’ retreat at The Wilds of New England. I’ll share more of that later, but today I want to share (again) the recipe for the dessert we had Friday night – Pumpkin Whoopie Pies. I’ve posted this recipe before, but thought it deserved double honor since its now pumpkin season! You won’t be disappointed with these yummy little treasures!Continue reading “Pumpkin Whoopie Pies”
Just in time for Thanksgiving, I’m bringing you the ultimate of pumpkin recipes! How about a Pumpkin Whoopie Pie?! If you’re not familiar with whoopie pies, my definition of them would be, two cake-like cookies with a cream filling in-between. Chocolate and white cream are popular, but when I was at The Wilds of New England in September, a sweet young woman made these pies for all the ladies’ dessert!!! I
begged asked her if she would share her recipe, and she sweetly obliged! Continue reading “Pumpkin Monday Returns!”
For the last feature of Pumpkin Monday, we’ll close out with the EASIEST three-ingredient Pumpkin Dip. This is so fast to whip up! You can refrigerate it to let it firm up, but we also found it delicious immediately!
I came upon this recipe on Pinterest where there were LOTS of variations, and then I added my own touch to it by having to improvise. The recipe calls for Cool Whip, which would work great. I had fresh whipping cream on hand…and that’s never a bad thing! I whipped up the cream with about 2 Tablespoons powdered sugar and it was perfect! This would be a great appetizer before Thanksgiving, or even as one of the desserts! It would be so easy to keep these three ingredients on hand so you could pull a fast treat together in a snap!
Here’s the simple recipe:
1 -15 oz. can pumpkin puree
1 -8 oz. container Cool Whip, thawed – (Or use 1 pint Whipping cream sweetened with 2-4 Tbl. Powdered sugar)
1 package 1.5 oz. Vanilla Instant Pudding Mix
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (optional, but adds great flavor!)
Directions: Cream together all ingredients with an electric mixer until well combined and fluffy. Chill in the fridge until ready to serve. Serve with Vanilla Wafers, Cookies, or Graham Crackers.
I love entertaining in the fall because you can really keep things simple. Why not host dinner and serve a great salad, an award-winning (but easy) soup, purchased rolls and this Pumpkin Dip and coffee for dessert?
With love from my country kitchen,
Happy Pumpkin Monday! Or should that be, “Happy Monday, Pumpkin?” =) At any rate, I tried a new pumpkin recipe this week when I needed a quick dessert for a picnic lunch and I wanted to share the recipe with you on this, our third Pumpkin Monday!
Last Monday when I posted about my Pumpkin Bars, my daughter asked,
“Can we make ‘Pumpkin Monday’ a thing?”
Well of course we can! I actually thought that was a great idea! I don’t know how long it Continue reading “Pumpkin Monday”
