Pumpkin Silk Pie Recipe and Silpat Giveaway

This Pumpkin Silk Pie is a delicious holiday dessert recipe that is easy to make. Pumpkin dessert recipes are perfect for holiday parties and this pie is a fun alternative to the traditional pumpkin pie.

Pumpkin Silk PieLast week we didn’t have a Holiday Progressive Dinner because we were having Thanksgiving dinner with our families but we are back this week with more delicious recipes and another great giveaway. Today I am sharing a dessert recipe for the progressive dinner and I made a Pumpkin Silk Pie.

Before I tell you how to make Pumpkin Silk Pie, I want to tell you about this week’s sponsor: Silpat! Even though I’ve been baking since I was a kid (Betty Crocker’s chocolate chip cookies from the vintage orange cookbook were my speciality) one of the kitchen tool that I’ve never had was a silicone baking mat…until now! I am the proud owner of a Silpat and a Roul’Pat. Silpat and Roul’Pat are both silicone mats but they are meant for different purposes and I use them all the time.

Silpat RecipesHere are some of the recipes that I’ve made using my Silpat and Roul’Pat:

Peppermint Patty Stuffed Ritz Crackers
Cinnamon Sugar Soft Pretzel Sticks
Candy Bar Pretzel Bites
Apple Tarts
Snowball Soft Pretzel Nuggets

Homemade Peppermint PattiesThe Roul’Pat is covered with silicone on both sides making it a non-stick countertop workstation that won’t slide while you are working. It is perfect for kneading and rolling out dough or pie crust, as well as working with fondant, chocolate and sugar. It is safe in the temperature range of  -40°F to 480°F so it can go in the oven! The Roul’Pat can also be used for hobbies or crafts like painting, gluing or working with modeling clay! I used it to roll out these peppermint patties. I have a full size Roul’Pat that measures 16 1/2 x 24 1/2 and you can enter to win one for yourself below!

Peppermint Patty RecipeThe Silpat is a non-stick baking mat that provides even heat transfer to baked goods with no greasing required! It is effective in temperatures from -40°F to 480°F or -40°C to 280°C. The non-stick surface is also great for putting chocolate dipped items on it, like these peppermint patties, rather than putting them on parchment. I have the half  sized Silpat that measures 11 5/8 x 16 1/2 and you can enter to win one below! The recipe for Homemade Peppermint Patties is coming next week.

Gingersnap Cookie CrustTo make the pumpkin silk pie, start by making a ginger snaps cookie crust. Finely crush 32 ginger snaps. (I used Nabisco brand ginger snaps that came in a box in the cookie aisle.) Mix in melted butter and sugar. Press into springform pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 5 minutes.

Pumpkin Silk BatterIn the meantime, make the pumpkin silk filling. Beat softened cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add the powdered sugar, pumpkin, vanilla (I used my Nielsen-Massey pure vanilla extract) and pumpkin pie spice; beat until smooth.

No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake RecipeFold in one large container of whipped topping (Cool Whip) and spread into the springform pan.

Pumpkin Silk Cheesecake PiePlace in the fridge for a couple of hours over overnight to allow it to set up. Remove the springform pan sides and top with additional whipped topping. I put the Cool Whip in a pastry bag and piped it onto the cake. Sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice.

  17. how do you clean the silpat? easy clean up?

    • Yes it is very easy to clean. Here are the instructions:
      • Wipe the Silpat® with a damp, soft sponge, then rinse with clean water.
      • Shake to remove excess water and dry in open air.
      • A weak solution of detergent or soap may be used if needed.
      • Note: the oily feeling after washing is normal, as is discoloration. Strong flavored foods may leave a trace of their scent on the Silpat®.
