Turkey, Brie and Cranberry Baguettes

Here's a recipe that i got from that i think you will all like
Happy Eatings!

Pumpkin Pie

recipe from Paula Dean

    * 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
    * 2 cups canned pumpkin, mashed
    * 1 cup sugar
    * 1/4 teaspoon salt
    * 1 egg plus 2 egg yolks, slightly beaten
    * 1 cup half-and-half
    * 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) melted butter
    * 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    * 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    * 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, optional
    * 1 piece pre-made pie dough

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Place 1 piece of pre-made pie dough down into a (9-inch) pie pan and press down along the bottom and all sides.
Pinch and crimp the edges together to make a pretty pattern. Put the pie shell back into the freezer for 1 hour to firm up.
Fit a piece of aluminum foil to cover the inside of the shell completely.
Fill the shell up to the edges with pie weights or dried beans (about 2 pounds) and place it in the oven.
Bake for 10 minutes, remove the foil and pie weights and bake for another 10 minutes or until the crust is dried out and beginning to color.

For the filling, in a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese with a hand mixer. Add the pumpkin and beat until combined.
Add the sugar and salt, and beat until combined. Add the eggs mixed with the yolks, half-and-half, and melted butter, and beat until combined.
Finally, add the vanilla, cinnamon, and ginger, if using, and beat until incorporated.

Pour the filling into the warm prepared pie crust and bake for 50 minutes, or until the center is set.
Place the pie on a wire rack and cool to room temperature.
Cut into slices and top each piece with a generous amount of cream cheese ice cream.

If you are going to be cooking with kids, just remember....Have patience! I hate when I see people who cook with kids and they are yelling at them for not doing something right. We have to remember to make it fun while teaching them!
15  Recipes & Tips / Ask Your Question / Re: Baking substitutions on: September 05, 2008, 05:57:33 PM
What about using "low fat" and "fat free" substitutions when baking or cooking? Has anyone tried the 1/3 less fat Philadelphia cream cheese at all? It's just as rich as the regular one.
