Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information.

Pumpkin Pie on the menu? Try pairing with Ice Wine, Moscato, and Vin Santo. Vin santo is typically sweet with notes of baking spices and nuts, so it pairs really well with pumpkin spiced desserts. A good sparkling Moscato would work too, and if you feel like splurging, an ice wine. One wine you could try is Schulze Vineyards Vidal Blanc Ice Wine. It has 5 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 50 dollars.

Schulze Vineyards Vidal Blanc Ice Wine

Distinctive aromatics of candied peaches, apricots and raw honey lavish the senses. Rich and viscous with luscious sweetness balanced by bright acidity. Truly a luxurious treasure which can be attributed to the terroir of the Niagara region. Made using authentic Eiswein techniques.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, combine cream and sugar. Beat until stiff peaks form and set aside.
  3. To make the crust, place cookies and butter in a food processor, pulse until finely ground. Press into a 9-inch pie plate and bake at 350F for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  4. Combine pudding mix, pumpkin, milk and cinnamon in large bowl until well combined. Fold in half of the whipped cream and pour into your prepared crust.
  5. Top pie with the remaining whipped cream, drizzle with caramel sauce and sprinkle the pecans on top.
  6. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour (or overnight) before serving.
  7. * You can also try make this in a springform pan, but I would recommend popping the cake in the freezer before unmolding/serving -- just be sure not to let it warm up too much or it might start to collapse!

Tips

Health Tips

  • Believe it or not, some sources say you can substitute avocado puree for butter when making brownies. Try it and let us know how it turns out!

  • Studies have shown people who drink full fat milk are thinner than those who drink low-fat or fat-free milk instead. Keep that in mind before you decide to swap. If you want to go dairy free, however, you can replace milk with unsweetened soy milk in most recipes.

  • If you can, choose grassfed butter for a better nutritional profile—more vitamins, a favorable omega 3/6 ratio, etc.

  • To make baked goods lighter and sneak in some extra nutrition, you can swap half the butter or oil (sometimes even all of it!) with an equal amount of unsweetened applesauce.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Confused by the different types of cream — Most differences arise from the fat content of the cream, and whether or not the cream has been "soured" by adding lactic acid bacteria to give it a tangy flavor.

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.

  • There are two types of cinnamon. The more expensive and rarer type is Ceylon cinnamon (considered to be "true cinnamon"). The cinnamon most common in North America is cassia cinnamon. Though the flavor is certainly similar, Ceylon cinnamon is said to be more subtle yet also more complex.

Green Tips

  • To avoid antibiotics, hormones, and other nasties in your milk, choose organic whenever possible. If you can't afford organic, look for milk labeled hormone and antibiotic free. It is often less expensive.
