Thanksgiving 2013 – Honey Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie

Most people like the taste of spicy sweet pumpkin, but some (including me) aren’t crazy about the texture of pumpkin pie. A delicious and easy dessert alternative is Honey Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie!

Ingredients:

1 qt vanilla ice cream (softened)

3/4 cup pumpkin (canned)

1/4 cup honey

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp ginger

1/4 tsp salt

1 pinch nutmeg

1 pinch clove

1 9 inch graham cracker pie crust

1/2 cup pecans (chopped and toasted)

Directions:

Combine all ingredients (except shell and pecans) and pour into pie shell. Sprinkle with pecans and freeze until serving time. Serve with whipped cream  and drizzled honey on top.

Honey Walnut Pie

This is a delicious take on traditional pecan pie.  If you want something even more decadent, try adding some chocolate chips!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup honey
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 1 deep-dish pie crust, unbaked

Directions

  1. Boil the honey. (It will boil quickly, so watch carefully)
  2. Quickly add eggs and mix well. (For the experienced cooks out there – yes, this sounds odd, but it does work.)
  3. Add everything else and mix well.
  4. Pour into pie shell. (You can sprinkle walnut halves on top at this point, if you wish.)
  5. Bake at 325 degree oven for 30-45 minutes, or until the center is set.
  6. Serve warm, topped with ice cream.
