Easy Pumpkin Turnovers w/ a Chocolate Candy Drizzle / #Pumpkin Week

 Hello and Welcome to Pumpkin Week! This week I am joining with some fellow bloggers to share some fun and tasty recipes featuring the star of the season~Pumpkin! Today I have some pumpkin turnovers to share with you! These turnovers are easy to make using purchased dough. They are full of homemade pumpkin and topped with a chocolate candy drizzle. These pumpkin turnovers can be the perfect way to start your day, or the perfect ending to a fantastic meal!

Easy Pumpkin Turnovers w/a Chocolate Candy Drizzle

(Feeds 4)

(printable recipe at end of page)

1 cup Pumpkin

1/2 cup Brown Sugar

1/2 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice

1 egg

1 Box Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry

Milk Chocolate

Heath Milk Chocolate English Toffee Bits

 

Place pumpkin, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice and egg in a medium size bowl.

 

Mix ingredients together.

 

Unroll the Puff Pastry and cut along the three lines where it was folded. Then cut each strip into four equal pieces. Don't worry about making them all the same size. It won't make any difference in the finished product.

Sprinkle the pumpkin pie spice over the pastry pieces. Place them on a cookie sheet or a pan to bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes. 

Remove from the oven and let cool.

To melt the chocolate, pour it into a cup and add a little cream or milk. Microwave on medium for 10-15 seconds until melted. You want the consistency to be fairy loose so you can drizzle the chocolate.

Cut the pastries in half long ways, place the pumpkin filling on the top of the bottom, then place the top piece on. Once all the pastry is filled, drizzle the tops with the melted chocolate and sprinkle with the toffee bits! Enjoy! 


Don't forget to check out all these tasty recipes from my blogging friends! They all look amazing! Thanks for stopping by!

Pumpkin Bread Pudding / #SundaySupper

Hurray! It's almost fall, and fall brings lots of fun ingredients and flavors, like pumpkin! So today I am bringing you a Pumpkin Bread Pudding recipe! I love this dessert, and once it was in the oven, I thought I might want something to top it off, like a chocolate drizzle! Just a little something extra, to make it extra special! 

Pumpkin Bread Pudding 
(printable recipe at end of page)

2 cups day old Bread
2 Eggs
2 Egg Yolks
3/4 cup Milk
3/4 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1/2 cup canned Pumpkin
pinch of Salt
1/2 tablespoon Vanilla
1/8 teaspoon Nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon Ground Cloves
1/2 tablespoon Butter
1/4 teaspoon Butter
1/2 cup Milk Chocolate Chips
3-4 tablespoons Heavy Whipping Cream 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Chop bread into small bite sized pieces. Place in a bowl and set aside.
Put eggs, yolks, milk, heavy whipping cream, pumpkin, sugar, salt, vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon and ground cloves in to a mixing bowl.
Place bread cubes in to each dish. Pour mix into each bowl, covering the bread cubes. Push bread cubes down to make sure they are covered by the mix. Divide the 1/2 tablespoon of butter between the four bread puddings, and place a piece on top of each dish.
Bake for 30-35 minutes. A toothpick in the center should come out clean for the bread pudding to be done baking.
While bread puddings are baking, make a quick chocolate drizzle on the stove. Melt butter in a small frying pan, on medium heat. Add the chocolate and the whipping cream. Continuously stir the ingredients until fully melted. Remove from heat.
Drizzle chocolate over bread puddings, and enjoy!

Pumpkin Hummus / #PUMPKINWEEK

I am starting to get some ideas together for special food and drinks I would like to serve during the holidays. Every year I like to serve something different than the year before. The only exception is that I also make whatever was the favorite from the year. This holiday season I will definitely be serving this Pumpkin Hummus. It is the perfect appetizer! The flavors are amazing together and this appetizer is not difficult to make at all. It has a pretty, festive color, and I served it with baked tortilla chips for something different!


Pumpkin Hummus
(printable recipe at end of post)

1 3/4 cups dry Garbanzo Beans
15 ounces Pumpkin Puree  
5 ounces Lemon Juice
1/3  cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 cup Tahini Paste
3 cloves Garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
Sprinkle of Cayenne Pepper
Salt  To Taste



Place the beans in a pot and cover with cold water, Let stand for 8 hours or overnight. The next morning, drain and rinse beans, and place back in pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Refrigerate beans and the liquid. Once beans and liquid are cold, drain the beans, but keep the liquid.
Place the beans in the blender and add 1/2 cup of reserved water. Blend until smooth.
Add the pumpkin puree, lemon juice, olive oil, tahini, garlic, cinnamon, pepper, and salt. Blend until smooth. You may need to add some more reserved water if needed.

Serve with crackers or tortilla chips!

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies / #PUMPKINWEEK

I love all things Whoopie Pie! It is probably one of my top 5 favorite things to bake. I love how versatile they are. You can create any filling you want, to go with any cookie you want. It's up to you and your imagination! And they are so soft and creamy! Mmm!
So I decided to look up some history on Whoopie Pies, and I found out that who originally came up with the Whoopie Pie is a controversial subject. Who knew?! Apparently Maine claims it as theirs and Pennsylvania says that it was first a product of the Amish kitchen. So I decided to look up Amish Whoopie Pies and the first thing that came up was a recipe for a Pumpkin Whoopie Pie! I knew I had to make it for #PumpkinWeek! This recipe for the cookie portion is directly from their web page, except for two changes. I used dark brown sugar for the brown sugar, and I changed the filling. I wanted something to compliment the taste of the pumpkin and not add additional sugar. I simply softened a block of cream cheese, whipped it in a bowl with a mixer, and piped it onto the cookie base. It is perfectly addicting, and I know you will love it! 
Pumpkin Whoopie Pies
(printable recipe at end of post)
 (Yields 2 dozen)
 
2 Cups Pumpkin
2 Egg Yolks
2 Cups Dark Brown Sugar
1 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 Teaspoon Cloves
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Ginger
Pinch Salt
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
3 Cups Flour
8 ounce Cream Cheese, softened 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Add pumpkin, egg yolks, dark brown sugar, vegetable oil, cloves, cinnamon, ginger, salt, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla and flour to a large mixing bowl. 
Using a 1 tablespoon scoop, place scoops of batter on a parchment covered cookie sheet. Bake for 7-9 minutes, checking pies to make sure they are done by using a toothpick.
Let cool completely on cooling rack.
Mix cream cheese in a bowl until there are no lumps. Using a #2A decorating tip, pipe whipped cream cheese over the flat portion of half of the Whoopie Pies. Top the whipped cream cheese with the other half of the flat portion of the Whoopie Pies.
Refrigerate and Enjoy!
