The Mini Pumpkin Pie with Spider Web

Pumpkin pie is a traditional sweet dessert, often eaten during the fall and early winter, especially for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. I wasn’t ready to wait till Thanksgiving, so decided to make it for Halloween ­čÖé

Halloween is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on 31st October. Typical contemporary festive Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, attending costume parties, decorating, carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing and divination games, playing pranks, visiting haunted attractions, telling scary stories and watching horror films. We signed up for hosting trick or treating this year for the very first time! So, pretty exciiitttttedddd! ­čśÇ

FUN FACT: The world’s largest pumpkin pie was made in New Bremen, Ohio, at the New Bremen Pumpkinfest.It was created on September 25, 2010. The pie consisted of 1,212 pounds of canned pumpkin, 109 gallons of evaporated milk, 2,796 eggs, 7 pounds of salt, 14.5 pounds of cinnamon, and 525 pounds of sugar.The final pie weighed 3,699 pounds and measured 20 feet in diameter.

I love the fragrance that you get while the pumpkin pie is baking! Do you? If yes, then this recipe is worth trying out ­čśë I have added the classic pumpkin pie recipe as well as the variation that I made this time!

TIP: To make the Spider Web, I mixed 1/4 cup of pie mix with cocoa powder until smooth and filled it in a piping bag. Then, cut a small hole in the corner of the bag containing the chocolate filling and pipe a large spiral (4-5 rotations) over the top of the plain pumpkin filling.Take a toothpick and, starting at the center of the tart, drag it gently through the filling towards the outer crust to create the spiderweb. Gently tap the pan on the table to smooth out any grooves in the filling. Here’s a video showing this process:

  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground Ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground Cloves
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 1 can 100% Pure Pumpkin
  • 1 can Evaporated Milk
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch deep-dish Pie shell
  • Whipped cream (optional)

Method

  1. Mix sugar, cinnamon, salt, ginger and cloves in small bowl. Beat eggs in large bowl. Stir in pumpkin and sugar-spice mixture. Gradually stir in evaporated milk.

  4. Cool on wire rack for 2 hours. Serve immediately or refrigerate. Top with whipped cream before serving.

Variation

  1. So instead of the traditional big pie, I decided to make small bite size ones this time. The steps are pretty much the same. Prepare the batter as in step 1 of the previous method. Pulse graham crackers and butter in a food processor.
  2. Take a mini cheesecake pan and line each mold with a 1 inch layer of the┬ágraham cracker mix and ´Čéatten it.┬áPour the pumpkin pie batter in each.┬áPreheat the oven to 375F and then bake for 45 minutes.

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

  • Servings: 8
  • Print

Ingredients

  • 3/4-1 cup Milk
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon juice

  • Pinch Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 cup whole Wheat ´Čéour

Method

  1. Preheat a large skillet on medium to medium-low heat on the stove┬ástop. You want the surface to be hot but not screaming hot – oil shouldn’t burn when it hits the surface.
  2. Combine 3/4 cup milk and lemon juice in a large bowl and let rest for 5 minutes to curdle. Then add melted butter or oil, honey, pumpkin, maple syrup, brown sugar, vanilla extract and whisk to combine.
  3. Next add flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and spices to a sifter┬áand sift over the wet ingredients. If the batter appears too thin, add a┬ábit more ´Čéour. If too thick, add a splash of milk. If too thin, add a bit┬ámore ´Čéour. Let batter rest for 5-10 minutes.
  4. Butter or spray your griddle with cooking spray and pour 1/4 cup measurements of the batter onto the griddle. There should be 6-7 pancakes. Flip when bubbles appear in the middle and the edges turn slightly dry.
  5. Cook for 1-3 minutes more on the other side, then plate.
