Orange Pumpkins de Creme

You’ll Need:

8 (6 to 8 ounce) miniature pumpkins
1 3/4 cups half-and-half
5 large egg yolks
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons orange-flavor liqueur
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
Finely shredded orange peel

Procedures : Rinse pumpkins. Pierce each top deeply with a knife or fork several times. Set pumpkins on a rack at least 1 inch above 1 1/2 inches of water in a 5- to 6-quart pan. Cover and bring water to a boil over high heat. Keep boiling and steam pumpkins until tender when pierced, 15 to 20 minutes. If needed, add more boiling water.

Let pumpkins cool until comfortable to touch, about 10 to 15 minutes.

With a small, sharp knife, cut down and around each stem to make an opening about 2 inches wide. Lift out stem end and reserve. With a small spoon, scoop seeds from pumpkins (without breaking through skin) and discard.

In a bowl, whisk half-and-half, egg yolks, sugar, liqueur and coriander. Fill pumpkins equally with egg mixture.

Return filled pumpkins and lids to a rack at least 1 inch above 1 1/2 inches of water in the pan. Drape foil over pumpkins to prevent condensation on the pan lid from dripping into filling. Cover pan and bring water to a boil over high heat. Keep water at a boil, and steam until filling looks set in center and jiggles only slightly all over when gently shaken, 12 to 16 minutes.

Gently transfer pumpkins to plates or a dish and set lids alongside if desired. Serve warm or cool. Garnish each pumpkin with shredded orange peel

Sour Cream Raisin Pie

You’ll Need:

2c Sour Cream
4 Egg Yolks
1 3/4c Sugar
4tsp Flour(heaping)
1 1/2c Raisins

1 baked 10-inch single-crust pie shell
Yields 1 (10-inch) pie

Procedures : Stir the sour cream and yolks in a heavy medium saucepan. Add the sugar. Dump in the flour, then rains, and mix using a wooden spoon.
Cook over medium heat until the raisins are plump and the filling is glossy (about 5 minutes after a full boil, or just a little longer,
depending on your burner).

Cool the filling slightly, then pour into the cool crust. Preheatoven to 400. Prepare meringue and spread onto pie. Put the pie in the
oven. Watch closely for 15 to 20 minutes, then take it out when the peaks are golden brown. Let it cool. Eat immediately or keep in a
cool room. Do not refrigerate unless keeping it overnight.”

Meringue: Place 12 medium egg whites in bowl. Add 1/4 heaping teaspoon cream of tartar. Beat until stiff, using an electric mixer on high
speed. Add 2 cups powdered sugar and beat until meringue forms soft peaks. Using a “licker” (a rubber spatula), spread onto pie filling,
making a good seal with the edge of the crust. The person who does this recipe says that large eggs don’t do well with this – she uses
small eggs…

I hope this is the recipe that the person on was looking for. I c an’t say how this recipe works – as I haven’t used
it – however, this recipes is from the cookbook written by Helen Myhre who owns the Norske Nook in Osseo, Wisconsin… Apparently this cafe
came into national recognition a while back – Willard Scott ate there as well as Charles Kuralt… She claims that her recipes are just
plain farm cooking.
