There is nothing wrong with making a double recipe, putting 1.5 of it into a large quiche earthenware baker, .5 into a large ramekin, baking, putting the large out to cool, tasting from the ramekin, then .... er ... dishing out hot pumpkin custard and pouring some leftover whipped cream on top.
Moon, you crack me up! I love reading your posts. I wish we could all meet because you remind me of me!
I made the secret chocolate cake tonight, and it is wrapped and waiting for tomorrow (or later today I guess...it is almost 12:30 a.m. here). I am going to make the frosting for it, but I won't frost until before I leave for my sister's for Thanksgiving dinner. I also made the low carb pumpkin cheesecake with an almond nutcrust. The chocolate cake smells absolutely delicious and looks so rich and decadent. The pumpkin cheesecake was making me drool! It is in the frig right now for the overnight chilling. I also made the sweet potatoes (that I won't be able to eat!) and they will be popped in the oven tomorrow for baking. I make my sweet potatoes candied, so lots of butter and dark brown sugar. So the combo of potatoes and dark brown sugar is a big time no-no for me. I might just have a tablespoon full of them, but it is a big might. I for sure can't wait to dive into the chocolate cake or the pumpkin cheesecake. I'll let you all know how well they go over with the family. I'm not telling anyone about the chocolate cake being made from black beans. They know already that I'm bringing low carb, high fat, sugarfree desserts. I'm anxious to taste these as well.
Happy Turkey Day to all of you here on the forum. I'm very thankful for all of you...my new diabetic friends. Thanks for all your support, opinions, discussions, help, and love. Hugs to all!
The whole family was at my house for Thanksgiving. My mother-in-law brought her usual 6 pies, and while they were eating their sugar-laden dessserts, my diabetic husband, son and I enjoyed a slice of this pumpkin pie topped with home-made whipped cream and a scoop of Breyer's Carb Smart ice cream on the side. We don't feel like we missed a thing. What a treat... and I plan to treat us often!
