I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Pumpkin Swirl Pie with Chocolate Crumb Crust

I started off with the good old Five Roses Flour pumpkin pie recipe, then changed it up a bit.

1  1/2 cups pumpkin purée
1 cup warm milk
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tbsps flour
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp vanilla

1/3 cup Reese spread or Nutella, warmed


1  1/4 cup chocolate crumbs
1/4 cup melted butter

Melt 1/4 cup of butter and blend in the chocolate crumbs.
Press into a 9" pie plate.  Set aside.

Mix ingredients from pumpkin purée to vanilla together and pour into prepared crust. I found a few pieces of pumpkin that hadn't gotten puréed. Oops!
Warm the Reese spread or Nutella in the microwave for a few seconds until you can stir it.  Drop spoonfuls on top of the pumpkin filling then take a knife a swirl it through.
Bake on lower rack at 450 F for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 325 F and bake an additional 25-30 minutes.   A knife in the middle should come out clean.
Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or cool whip and a drizzle of chocolate syrup.
