Ingredients

  • 1 ⁄2 store-bought 8” pumpkin pie, or 2 cups pumpkin pie filling
  • 3 Tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon sugar (see Harvest Fest recipe in Chapter 3 for cinnamon sugar details)
  • 4 –6 tablespoons melted sweet butter, for grilling
  • 4 slices cracked wheat bread, or brioche
  • 1 Cup gorgonzola cheese, divided

Directions

Scoop filling out of half of pumpkin pie, leaving the crust behind.

In a mixing bowl, combine pumpkin pie with cream cheese, cinnamon, and cinnamon sugar. Set aside.
Brush melted butter on the outside of the 4 slices of bread. In a sauté pan, place 2 slices of bread butter side down. Spread 1⁄2 of the pumpkin mixture on each slice of bread, followed by 1⁄2 cup of gorgonzola cheese per sandwich. Place the other 2 slices of bread on top, butter side up.
Let sandwiches cook on medium heat for 5 minutes per side or until bread is golden brown.
Cut on the diagonal and serve warm.

Pumpkin Pie Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Pumpkin Pie Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
