Watch These Guys Try Clear Pumpkin Pie

Not too long ago, Chicago-based restaurant Alinea released a crystal clear pumpkin pie for the fall season. The dessert was specifically designed for the restaurant’s tasting menu and went pretty viral.

Unfortunately, the tasting menu is said to be pretty pricey and most folks wouldn’t be able to try the unconventional pie unless they’re willing to spend the cash.

Rhett and Link from Good Mythical Morning decided to try their hand at recreating that viral pie and then taste test it themselves. All they used were some store-bought pie crusts, sugar, gelatin, and pumpkin flavoring. Y’know, ingredients most folks can afford.

Visually, their attempt was pretty close to how the actual pie looked from the restaurant, just a little larger.

Check out what they thought of the clear pumpkin pie as well as all the other clear pies the Good Mythical Morning crew cooked up.

This CLEAR Pumpkin Pie Is An Amazing Take On The Fall Favorite

Pumpkin pie for the fall menu. #surrealism

A post shared by Simon Davies (@simon.a.davies) on

We’re smack dab in the middle of fall and seeing tons of pumpkin pie-themed foods everywhere. While we thought we’ve seen every variation of the popular fall dessert, we were pleased to be proven wrong.

Simon Davies, Chef de Cuisine at Alinea restaurant in Chicago, created a crystal clear pumpkin pie that looks truly majestic.

In place of the dark orange pumpkin filling we’re familiar with, this pie is filled with what looks to be some kind of gelatin. You can see right through it and into the crust.

The tiny dessert, which can be seen to scale in this video below, is available at the celebrated restaurant for the fall says the chef.

If you’re one who adores anything and everything pumpkin related about the season, perhaps you should pay a visit to Alinea in Chicago and try this pie for yourself.

M&M’s Newest Flavor Has A White Chocolate Twist On Pumpkin Pie

With Fall around the corner, it’s about time we get ready for a bombardment of pumpkin-flavored products. M&M’s is getting the ball rolling with their new White Pumpkin Pie flavor already hitting store aisles this August.

The candies are made with a pumpkin pie-flavored coating, while the inside consists of a white chocolate filling.

The  8-ounce bags of White Pumpkin Pie M&M’s can be found at Walmart for  the retail price of $2.98, so you’re going to have to endure the Walmart experience for a bit, run in, grab a bag, and run out as quickly as possible.

While it’s too damn early to be thinking about fall, these M&M’s sound like they’re probably pretty good, so we might have to give them a pass and not get too mad for trying to rush summer out the door.

This Holiday Pie Granola is Delicious And Tackles Food Waste Issues

With the holiday season now beginning, all of the timely dessert-themed products are taking the market by storm. One product line, however, stands out from the rest.

Los Angeles-based startup Pulp Pantry has brought the holiday pie flavors into granola, with flavors like Apple Pie and Pumpkin Pie available to taste.

granola_720

What’s special about the granola from Pulp Pantry is that they are entirely plant-based and GRAIN FREE.

Instead of using traditional oats to make these festive granolas, CEO Kaitlin Mogentale sources pulps from LA-based juiceries like Suja to create her products. Almond pulp, apple pulp, and carrot pulp that would otherwise be discarded is converted into delicious, clean snacks like these granolas that are high in both fiber and protein.

Using pulps to create these products give Pulp Pantry an exciting and innovative angle in the granola world, as it provides huge flavor coupled with incredible nutrition. On top of that, it tackles the growing issue of food waste in this country – where 60 million tons of produce are tossed as food waste each year.

Pulp Pantry addresses this issue with the granolas, veggie crackers, and baking mixes that they sell online and in stores.

While the Apple Pie Granola is an original product, Pumpkin Pie is a new flavor created just in time for the holiday season.

You can head online to get these exciting, festive granolas, and also where the Pumpkin Pie flavor is sold exclusively. Pulp Pantry’s original flavors of granola can also be found across several stores in the Los Angeles area:

  • Erewhon
  • Renew Juicery
  • Livestyle Juice Bar
  • Grow DTLA
  • Grassroots Natural Market

We absolutely recommend heading to one of these stores (or online) to grab these granolas as a perfect holiday party snack or as a way to give your breakfast a holiday-themed, food-conscious twist!

This Massive Pie Cake Is The ‘Turducken’ Of Desserts

Pumpecapple-Piecake-Cover

Thanksgiving is still months away, but that doesn’t mean we can’t draw inspiration from the Frankenstein dish known as the Turducken. A bakery in Texas has created the dessert equivalent: the Pumpecapple Piecake.

Three Brothers Bakery, known for scratch-made baked goods and desserts, created a Pumpecapple Piecake that’s as hard to devour as it is to pronounce. The three-layer dessert cake features a pumpkin pie baked into a pumpkin spice cake, an apple pie baked into a spice cake and a pecan pie baked into a chocolate cake. The individual pie-cake layers are stacked on top of each other and smothered with a cream cheese icing, pecan pieces, and a caramel drizzle. It’s a total dessert-ception.

The behemoth stands at 11 inches and weighs 23.5 pounds.

You can buy a Pumpecapple Piecake at Three Brothers’ online store for $250. Definitely something for the family to enjoy after tackling the Turducken, or to enjoy by yourself if you’re just having a bad day.

How To Make Pumpkin Pie Cinnamon Rolls In 3 Easy Steps

ppcrfb

It’s about that time where pumpkin starts to overtake kitchens and ridiculous orangey creations fill the autumn air.

While things like pumpkin spice chicken sausage and pumpkin spice Mini Wheats might leave you shaking your head, this pumpkin pie cinnamon roll makes a lot more sense and actually sounds pretty delicious.

The Oh, Bite It cooking blog has blessed us with a recipe that mercifully leaves out the spice and uses pumpkin, straight up.

You’ll need some cinnamon rolls, obviously, which you can make from scratch, or just use the Pillsbury canned stuff, which is what Oh, Bite It did. Then use a pumpkin pie mix and cream cheese frosting to fill in the cinnamon rolls.

Oh, Bite It essentially just smears the pumpkin pie mix over the laid out cinnamon rolls, rolls them up and bakes them for about 12 minutes.

It really looks like a quick and easy fall treat that doesn’t take hardcore baking skills, just the right ingredients, and some basic reading comprehension.

For more complete cooking directions straight from the source, and other dope recipes, check out Oh, Bite It.
