Recipe: Culinary Concoctions by Peabody
Labor Day has come and gone, which means we can no longer complain about pumpkin flavored foods. We can, however, celebrate the fact that businesses are actually shaking things up or fall. Dunkin’ Donuts just rolled out a pumpkin crème brûlée-flavored coffee, and now Baskin’ Robbins is throwing cheesecake into the mix with their latest Pumpkin Cheesecake ice cream, the featured flavor of the month for September.
Featuring a swirl of pumpkin and cheesecake flavored ice cream, ginger snap cookie pieces, and a cinnamon cream cheese ribbon, the Pumpkin Cheesecake flavor is actually pretty subtle — like a spice cake, accented by the occasional burst of cream cheese.
Also among the seasonal flavors at select shops nationwide are German Chocolate Cake, Peanut Butter ‘N Jelly, Quarterback Crunch (vanilla with chocolate coated rice crisps), and S’More The Merrier. But the Pumpkin Cheesecake though, definitely worth the calories.
My friend Jackie (Yack) is always baking up awesome treats, especially during the holidays. Here we have a Pumpkin Cheesecake she made but with a little twist, it has gingersnap crust. I wonder how this would do against Costco’s pumpkin pies in competition.
