Alright, so this Turkey (or any) day recipe is just for the adults. This is something I stumbled across a few weeks ago at a local restaurant and have been itching to try and make something similar ever since! The best part about having this after your big dinner is that it has all of the deliciousness of pumpkin pie, only a fraction of the dishes, and none of the slaving over a hot stove. Now that’s my kind of dessert!
So, after you have worked all day, mix up a few of these for you and
yourself your loved ones, kick up your heels and relax!
Pumpkin Pie Martinis for 2
- 2 ounce vanilla vodka
- 3 ounces white chocolate cream liqueur
- 1 ounce half and half or heavy cream
- 1 Tbsp canned pumpkin pie filling
- 3 ounces pumpkin spice coffee creamer, regular or sugar free
- pumpkin pie spice
- graham cracker crumbs, premade or made yourself (I find the premade are more uniform)
- maple syrup or honey
- Whipped cream, for garnish
Place graham crackers on salad plate or in shallow wide rimmed bowl. Pour a small amount of maple syrup onto another plate. Place glass, rim side down into the maple syrup. Next, place the glass, rim side down into the graham cracker crumbs, being sure that the glass is evenly coated. Set aside.
Fill drink shaker half full of ice add all all liquors, pumpkin pie filling, half and half, and pumpkin creamer. Shake vigorously until well combined. Strain into prepared glasses. Sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice and top with whipped cream if desired. Enjoy!
