Delicious Pumpkin Desserts

pumpkin desserts

One of my favorite things about fall are all the delicious pumpkin desserts. Warming and comforting pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin purèe are two things I always have on hand throughout the fall season. I make them myself every year because it’s simple and it makes every dessert so much more special.

Here is how I do it.

 

Homemade pumpkin pie spice mix:

4 tbsp cinnamon

2 tbsp ginger

2 tbsp nutmeg

2 tbsp allspice

1 tbsp cloves

1/4 tbsp cardamom

Add all of the spices in a bowl and mix to combine. Transfer the mix into a glass jar and store in the fridge. I like to buy whole nutmeg, allspice, cloves and cardamom and grind them myself, that way the aroma is more fresh. For the same reason I keep my spice mix in the fridge, it’s flavor stays fresh and strong longer than if I kept it in cabinets.

 

Homemade pumpkin purèe:

For homemade pumpkin purèe choose sugar pumpkins or winter squashes.

Cut them in half and take the seeds out. Place them on a baking sheet, lined with baking paper, cut side down. Bake the pumpkin at 350°F (175°C) for approx. 30-50 minutes, depending on the size, or until you can easily pierce it with a fork. Leave the pumpkin to cool enough to handle. Then carefully remove skin from the flesh. Place the flesh into a food processor (or a bowl if you’ll be using a hand blender) and blend it on high speed until smooth and creamy. Portion prepared purèe in freezer bags (2 cups are roughly 1 15 oz can) and store it in the freezer for up to 3 months. When ready to use, you can thaw it in the fridge for 12-24 hours, in a microwave or in a pot on a stove on low heat.

 

When you have two main ingredients ready you can start making delicious pumpkin desserts anytime.
