Variations for pumpkin pie recipes
The traditional pumpkin pie hasn't changed much, but everyone has their favorite recipe. Nowadays there are some creative variations, such as the addition of beaten egg whites into the mix to make Pumpkin Chiffon Pie or a meringue topping.
Pie crusts can create a bit of variation. For a change, why not try a crust of crushed ginger biscuits or walnuts. Or for a really special finish make a brulee by covering the top with brown sugar and melting the sugar with a kitchen blowtorch. This creates a crunchy caramel top for that really special dinner party.
Another gingery variation is to put a thin layer of finely chopped crystallized ginger over the pie crust just before you add the pie filling.
Experiment with your accompaniments too. Whipped cream is wonderful and everyone loves it, but why not try it with rum and raisin ice cream, or add a little vanilla essence to your creamy topping.
Pumpkin bars are a great innovation for convenience. Whenever you want a pumpkin pie taste but don't want to use cutlery and bowls, the bar is a fantastic alternative.
You can use also use pie filling as a dessert on its own. Chilled as a mousse, or served hot in a mini pumpkin shell it can be very special.
You can freeze it for up to a month too, so it can be a useful thing to keep for those unexpected guests. It's better to freeze just the filling anyway, as pie crusts can go a bit soggy if you freeze the whole pie.
