So a couple of weeks ago at the end of our 6PM Newscast you may recall Jay and Chris making fun of me because I love “all things” pumpkin. Seriously, if it has pumpkin in it…I”m sold. That’s probably the thing I love most about not just fall but October. To me, it’s the month where you get the green light to pull out the pumpkin recipes.
I have a killer pumpkin recipe for soup (Thanks to my former weekend producer here at WDBJ7 Alex Lawson).
Pumpkin Latte’s – I leave that up to Starbucks but at this rate I should take out stock in the company and make them pay me.
I’m still working on Pumpkin Cheesecake – though Olive Garden’s is not just Sensational but “Sin”sational. (But it still can’t top my mother’s pumpkin pie!)
And thanks to a viewer…I have a new pumpkin dessert to add to my collection and this one according to Ronn is low-cal.
Take a yellow cake mix, add 1 egg, 1 stick butter
pat in greased 13 x 9 baking pan
Preheat oven to 350
Mix in this order
1- 8 ounce cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 stick butter…melted
1 box powdered sugar
1- 15 ounce can pumpkin
add cinnamon and nutmeg to your liking
mix well and pour over cake mix in pan
Bake 40-50 minutes…middle will be somewhat gooey.
I can’t wait to try this one!
