Pumpkin Pye - that's Pie with a Rye Crust - for #PumpkinWeek

Hello and welcome to day 6 and the end of #PumpkinWeek hosted by Terri of Love and Confections. We are celebrating our love of the season with a whole week of pumpkin goodies, leading up to National Pumpkin Day, tomorrow. 17 Food Bloggers have come together to share over 65 recipes with you. In addition to homemade pumpkin puree, pie, and cookies, we are also sharing savory pumpkin dishes like hummus, chili and pumpkin corn chowder.

Come back every day for #PumpkinWeek recipes. You can also find these great recipes and more on Love and Confections' #PumpkinWeek Pinterest Board!


And for this final day of #PumpkinWeek I decided to (re)post a recipe that my 12-year-old, AKA the Precise Kitchen Elf, made for Thanksgiving last year...and throughout the entire winter. It's a family favorite. Thanks to Terri, of Love and Confections, for hosting this fun, pumpkin-filled week. I hope you enjoyed it. I certainly did.


Ingredients
The Crust
  • 1-1/2 C white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 C dark rye flour
  • 1 T caraway seeds, lightly crushed in a mortar and pestle
  • 1/2 C powdered sugar
  • 3/4 C butter

The Pie
  • 2 C pumpkin puree (here's how to make your own puree)
  • 1 C Hachiya persimmon puree (feel free to use all pumpkin if you don't have any persimmon)
  • 1 C heavy cream
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 3 T organic brown sugar
  • 1 t ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 t ground cloves
  • 1/2 t ground nutmeg
  • 1 T pure vanilla extract

Procedure
Mix the flours, sugar and caraway seeds; rub in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Stir in 1 teaspoon of water with a fork until the mixture forms a ball. Roll out between two pieces of parchment paper. Press gently into a pie pan. Chill in the freezer until ready to bake.


Whisk all of the filling ingredients together and place in the crust.



Bake in a 350 degree oven for an hour or until the filling is set. It will be firm to the touch and the crust will be lightly browned. Let it cool slightly before slicing. Serve with a dollop of unsweetened whipped cream.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
