Happy Thanksgiving, Canada!
That’s right, it’s Thanksgiving weekend in Canada (Thanksgiving is on Monday) when we give thanks for the Harvest and other blessings of the year.
It’s a beautiful, sunny, Fall day but, unlike so many of my friends who participated in the Harvest Marathon this morning, I’ve been studying my butt off all weekend. It sucks.
But, I do have dinner plans tonight which involve my adorable little nephews, so I will welcome that study break.
And, although I’ve been studying half the day already, I did take some time out to make some delicious pumpkin pie tarts
Actually, what I made are Paradise Pumpkin Pie tarts. I usually make a big pie, but, y’know, studying.
These little tastes of pumpkiny goodness step away from the traditional pies and offer a little kick. I don’t normally share the recipe but I’ll share the one I altered today so that I could spend more time on the books (and, apparently, on this blog):
Paradise Pumpkin Pie (tarts)
1 can of pumpkin pie filling
1 block of cream cheese, softened
1-2 tablespoons of vanilla
Pumpkin pie spice (optional)
Whip topping (optional)
Tart shells or pie crusts (I don’t make this crap from scratch – but if you’re up for the challenge, give’er!)
Throw the pie filling, cream cheese, vanilla, and spice in a bowl and blend it up (I used an electric beater). Pour into tart shells or pie crusts (top with tiny dashes of the spice if desired) and bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes. Once out of the oven and cool top with whip if desired.
Aside from it being Thanksgiving, it’s also The Walking Dead premier night. I will definitely be study-breaking for that.
In addition, I am also really, REALLY thankful for Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts. I have no idea where you can buy these but I would be happy (and thankful) to accept donations.
