6. Pumpkin spice dessert sauce
By making some simple crepes with slivered almonds (cook over low heat so nuts don't burn) you have created a lightly flavored backdrop to show off the wow sauce where pumpkin spice liqueur is the star!
Tip: make sure you allow your crepe batter to rest in the fridge for at least an hour so the flour can absorb the milk and fully hydrate. This will make the most tender melt in your mouth crepe.
To make the sauce:
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 C. powdered sugar
- 2 Tbsp pumpkin spice liqueur
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 c. milk or cream
This recipe is cooked over hot water. Simply put a medium sauce pan with 2" of water over medium heat and allow it to come to a simmer. Use a heatproof bowl (glass or metal) that will fit over the pot without falling in or allows the water to touch to bottom of it.
Cream the butter, add sugar gradually, then pumpkin spice liqueur very slowly. Then finally beaten egg yolks and milk or cream. Put bowl over simmering water and stir/whisk until it thickens into a custard. Remove from heat and beat in egg whites. Serve over crepes and top with whipped cream or ice cream if desired.
7. Pumpkin pecan spice pie
Amp up your pumpkin pie by topping it with pumpkin pie liqueur infused pecan topping. I adore the contrast of crunchy nuts on top of silky pumpkin custard pie.
To make this, have your prepared pecan ready to top the pie during the last 10 minutes of baking. I encourage you to add 2 Tbsp of liqueur to your pumpkin custard mix before pouring it into the shell too. Use your favorite pumpkin pie recipe (I like to use home roasted pumpkin for my filling).
You will need 1 well beaten egg white, 1 1/2 cups raw pecans, 1.5 Tbsp pumpkin spice liqueur, 1 Tbsp brown sugar, pinch salt and a Tbsp melted butter.
Just before the pie is done baking, toast pecans on a rimmed baking sheet, tossing once, until slightly darkened and fragrant, 8–10 minutes.
Whisk egg white, remaining 1 Tbsp. brown sugar, salt and liqueur in a small bowl until foamy, about 30 seconds. 1 Tbsp melted butter; whisk just to combine. Add pecans and toss to coat.
When pie is ALMOST done baking (5-10 mins remain) remove pie from oven and top with pecan mixture, allowing any excess egg white mixture to drip back into the bowl. Return pie to oven and bake until filling is completely set (a tester or paring knife inserted into the center should come out clean) and nuts are not tacky to the touch, 8–10 minutes. Transfer pie to a wire rack and let cool, at least 2 hours. This pie tastes better the longer it sits. I find 18 hours after baking to be the most flavorful if you can wait that long!
