Who would ever think that a pareve pumpkin pie could be the subject of determined debate? Is it a side dish or dessert? Do you top it with marshmallows or a dollop of whipped cream? ©istockphoto/ Jack Puccio
Well, I can tell you from my own roots in the deep south, that a true southern pumpkin pie is always-and only-a delicious side dish And it never wears a sticky white marshmallow or white cream garnish, either.
Plain and simple. Tried and true...and now from Cooking for the King, dessert or a side? It's yours to decide.
I make many pies and tarts with this one-dish-dummy-proof pie crust. Try it out yourself.
This recipe and many other delicious kosher recipes are now in print in my first book, Cooking for the King ~ recipes for life. This not like any other kosher cookbook. It is so much more. It's the cookbook women I respect have asked for: besides offering a wide range of make ahead kosher recipes and ideas perfect for any Shabbos or Yom Tov, it is chizuk, it is elevation. It is sometimes funny and sometimes serious. It speaks to who we are and who we really want to be.
Get this scrumptious Southern Pareve Pumpkin Pie in the first edition of Cooking for the King here, at your local Jewish bookstore or on Amazon:
You'll want to try the Harvest Bisque Butternut Squash Soup, Good as Gold Potatoes, and Caramelized Onion Chicken. I'm getting rave reviews on those recipes!
