Pumpkin Pie Bars THM-S

This past weekend as I watched snowflakes swirling past the window, all I could think of was — I’m not ready for fall to be over with the colorful leaves, apples, and pumpkins. But just as God has promised there will always be the cycle of seasons, after fall comes winter. My teacher daughter was given 4 huge neck pumpkins by one of her student. These pumpkins make the best pies and if you are in a crunch for time this recipe tastes just like a pumpkin pie. I love that it is so easy to make without the hassle of rolling out pie crusts.

Pumpkin Pie Bars THM-S

For crust: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Pulse until mixture is crumbly. Press crumbs in layer in a 9 x 13 glass baking pan. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until light brown. Remove from oven. Set aside. Combine filling ingredient in a blender jar. Blend for 2 minutes.  Pour carefully over crust. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until set.  Remove from oven and cool completely.  18 servings

**NOTE: THM Oat Fiber is the best on the market. It does not have the gritty texture and funny after taste of some kinds.

Old-Fashioned Caramel Pudding THM-S

If you grew up in the rich Pennsylvania Dutch heritage like I did, puddings made with cornstarch were a staple in many homes. Many of our grandparents had a family cow or milked cows for an income. Caramel Pudding has always been a favorite in our family and my late mother-in-law made the best pudding. She always browned the butter and caramelized the brown sugar she used.  Brown butter is another Pennsylvania Dutch practice that most of us grew up with and is unheard of in other areas.  This recipe has satisfied my craving for the traditional sugar laden pudding my grandma would make.

Old-Fashioned Caramel Pudding THM-S

Combine milk and cream together, set aside. In a 2 quart sauce pan melt butter over medium heat. Cook butter until it is golden brown. Add sweetener. Cook 2 minutes. Add 1 3/4 cups of the milk mixture to the saucepan. Heat to just about boiling point. With a hand blender,  blend the remaining milk mixture, eggs, and glucomannan together until smooth.  Add 1/2 cup of hot milk and blend again. Whisk egg mixture into the saucepan. Whisk until it thickens slightly. Remove  from heat. Whisk flavoring, salt, and molasses. Soften gelatin in water for 5 minutes. Whisk into hot pudding. Cool. Serves 4-6.

Use the larger amount of gelatin for a firmer set.

I blend the pudding with my hand blender after I add the gelatin for an extra smooth creamy texture!

Crust-less Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie THM-S

Browsing through a magazine this past week I saw a recipe for Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie but off course it was loaded with sugar. I decide to try a sugar-free one and for the lack of time made it without a crust. It was very well received by the taste-testers in my family and now I have a new favorite for the fall holidays. In this recipe I use my home canned pumpkin but bought canned pumpkin works just as well or you can substitute well-drained cooked butternut squash.

Crust-less Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie  THM-S

Cheesecake layer:

Pumpkin Layer:

  • 1 1/4 cups pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/3 cup Greek Yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons THM Gentle Sweet or Brown Sugar Sweetener*
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Walnut Streusel Topping:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease the bottom of a 9 inch glass pie pan. Set aside. In a mixer bowl whip together cream cheese and sweetener until smooth. Add egg, vanilla, and salt. Mix until just combined. Spread evenly on the bottom of the pie pan. Set aside. Combine pumpkin layer ingredients in blender jar or in a bowl. Blend until smooth. Carefully pour over cream cheese mixture. For streusel topping combine baking blend, Brown Sugar Sweetener, and walnuts together. Mix in cold butter until just combined. Sprinkle over the pumpkin layer. Cover the pie plate with foil–folding up the center so it doesn’t touch the filling. Place in over for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake 15-20 minutes longer or until center of the pie is just so set. Remove from oven and cool for 8 hours or until completely set. Serves 8

* I prefer using Brown Sugar Sweetener for the added flavor it gives.

Old Fashioned Apple Dumplings THM-XO

Old Fashioned Apple Dumplings have been a family favorite for years. These are seasonal item you will find in many Amish/Mennonite bakeries and roadside stands in the fall.  They can be eaten warm with a bit of cream which is my favorite or with ice cream like some of my family prefer.  This recipe is a healthier version of an old traditional comfort food made by our grandmothers.

Old Fashioned Apple Dumplings THM-XO

  • 6 apples, cored and peeled, I used Granny Smith Apples

Pastry:

Sauce:

Pastry: In a mixer bowl combine flours, baking powder, and salt together. Cut in shortening until pea size. Add cream and almond milk. Mix lightly until just moistened and combined. Divide dough in half. Roll each half in a rectangle shape. Cut in 3 pieces. Press one dough piece around each apple. Place apples in individual 6 baking dishes or in a 9 x 13 baking pan (6 dumplings in the pan). Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Sauce:  Combine water, butter, cinnamon, vanilla,  sweetener, and molasses in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and whisk in glucomannan. Remove from heat. Pour half of the sauce over the apples. Place pan of dumplings in the oven. Bake for 20 minutes, pour remaining sauce over apples. Cover with foil. Bake for an additional 25 minutes.

Fried Apples with Greek Yogurt THM-E

Crisp,  juicy apples in shades of green, yellow, and red are being picked in orchards these late summer days. Their flavors vary from tart to honey sweet. In our area freshly picked apples begin to appear at produce markets in late July and continue being picked until late October.  Fried apples are so easy to make and the Brown Sugar Sweetener caramelizes on them for a melt-in-your-mouth goodness. I was gifted Granny Smith Apples and the combination of tart/caramelized is so appealing.
