Deal on canned pumpkin! Woot!

I found the 30 oz cans of Libby pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix) at Aldi's for $1.99 each! I bought 2 cans.

Now, I have to figure out the best thing to make. Ideas?

I'd like a reallllly good pumpkin cheesecake recipe!

I just mix some pumpkin with a little cream cheese, pumpkin pie spice, a little stevia or splenda and pop it in the microwave til warm and blended, then pour a little heavy cream on top.......

I know there are a lot of pumpkin pie recipes in the recipe section here.

I know there are SO many, I don't know where to begin.

I think last time I LC'd, I made Cheri's pumpkin cheesecake (I THINK!). So I think I'll start there. I've read a lot of good reviews on the Pumpkin Bake (Jody's, I think it is), so I might try it too.

A spoonful (or 2 or 3 lol) along with some pumpkin pie spice and stevia in full fat yogurt is a nice summery way to eat it

Hello BigBrave'sgirl

Honey,

Go out and purchase a dozen cans. Pumpkin freezes perfectly.
Nowhere can you find large cans of pumpkin for $1.99.

Pumpkin Fluff!! Oh so yummy as a dip or as a parfait!




And I agree! Stock up! It's an awesome price, pumpkin keeps for a long time in the cans and it freezes well too and you can't beat that price. Around here we have a pumpkin shortage in most stores unless it's close to thanksgiving, so I would totally stock up just for that reason!

Here is Cherie's Pumpkin Cheese cake.


This recipe tastes just like Pumpkin Pie.. so moist and delicious! I have had many compliments on it and I had a friend make it. Even though they do not like Pumpkin very much they loved it!


This recipe is my own creation.. please do not copy for the purpose of publishing or use on any other site without my expressed permission.



Ingredients:

CRUST


3/4 cup pecans (finely chopped)
3/4 cup Almond Flour
2 Tablespoons butter (melted)


FILLING


16 ounces cream cheese -- softened
1 cup splenda (pourable) or sugar substitue that is equal to 1 cup of sugar.
15 ounces pumpkin (one can)
3/4 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs -- room temperature



How To Prepare:

CRUST


Combined finely chopped pecans with Almond Flour (or Almond Meal). Stir Melted butter into the nut mixture. Press the nut mixture into the bottom and 1 1/2 inch up the sides of a springform pan. Set aside while you make the filling.


FILLING


Blend cream cheese with the sugar substitute until creamy... add the rest of the ingredients except the eggs together well... Add eggs, one at a time until just blended. Pour over the crust.


Bake in a 325 degree oven for 1 hour. Remove from oven. Run a knife around the outside edge of the pan to loosen the cheese cake from the sides, to keep it from cracking. Let cool completely. After it cools refrigerate the cheesecake overnight. The cheesecake may shrink from the sides while cooling, but that is okay.. you are going to love the flavor.. Have a piece for breakfast, it is goooood!!! Tastes just like pumpkin pie... but only better!

I was underwhelmed with the Jody's Pumpkin Bake. It seemed like it was missing something. I'm going to have to try that Pumpkin Fluff if I can get my hands on some brown sugar substitute though!

Summer, I bought Ideal Brown to use.

I still haven't made anything yet, but I am going by Aldi's this afternoon to see if they still have the pumpkin and I'm gonna stock up. I love pumpkin stuff!

I tend to go by taste, but I would say with the kind of extract I use just a little less than 1/4 of a cup. The equivalent of 3 tbsp of sugar replacement should do it!

I can't get it locally anymore either. Not the bulk anyway. I had just found it in one store and then it was gone. Now all I can find are the packs. But I see that netrition carries the bulk sweetener too now and I got my last lot with amazon prime. I'd much prefer it locally though! Had I known it was that short lived I would have stocked up!

Thanks! I'm going to make this. My late brother used to make a non-baked pumpkin cheesecake for Thanksgiving every year. It was DELICOUS! I'm sure this will remind me of that. It might make me miss him more, though. Gah, emotions are wonky things!

Luckily, we can still get Ideal (regular and brown). They also have powdered, but I didn't buy that. I found diabetisweet at the pharmacy last night. I didn't buy any (pinching pennies right now and it was $8 a pound) but I'm glad to know it's available since I see it in a lot of recipes.

Oh, don't get the powdered Ideal - it has cornstarch in it! Just powder your own by putting the regular kind through a coffee grinder!

I have never used diabetisweet, haven't come across that locally! Ideal, erythritol and stevia seem to be my main sweeteners now!

I use the purevia and the truvia packets, but not nearly as much as the liquid stevia. In recipes I usually specify if I'm using the liquid stevia or the packets.

The liquid stevia I use currently is a store brand from my local healthfood store, but I've been using it in the same quantities in recipes as people who use the nunaturals kind, so I would guess it's the same strength.
