Pumpkin Pie Fritters

Remember when I stocked up on an ungodly amount of canned pumpkin. I used my first can. Que ceremonious music. I decided to make some Pumpkin Pie Fritters, because variations on pumpkin pie are never a bad idea.

Speaking of variations….

Brace yourself. *Naked* pumpkin pie fritters.

Powdered fritters. Sometimes a little powder on one's nose is all a girl needs to go out.

And my favorite: glazed fritters. It also occurs to me that a few of these fritters paired with a scoop of cinnamon ice cream would be divine…I could probably go on, but you get the idea.

Variety. The spice of life.

What I really liked about these pumpkin pie fritters is that they have a very silky smooth texture to them, even though they are lightly fried on the outside. It's a really fun and tasty combination of textures. But it also means that you really need to pay attention to how hot your oil is, and how long you allow these little babies to cook. If you are not careful they can be a bit raw in the middle, so watch out for that;)

Pumpkin Pie Fritters, makes 18-22 small fritters.

Ingredients: 1 can of pumpkin puree, 1 large egg, 1 and 1/4 cups flour, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, 1/4 packed brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon baking powder, 1/8 teaspoons salt, 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon cloves and 1/4 teaspoon ginger.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir until well combined. Heat 2-3 inches of oil (I used canola, but other flavorless oils are fine too) over medium to high heat. Drop about a tablespoon of batter into the hot oil and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes, flip and repeat. Remove from oil to a plate lined with paper towels and check the middle of the fritter. You want your oil to be hot enough to cook the fritters all the way through without burning the outside (but it will look lightly toasted, that's a good thing). Adjust your oil if you need to and repeat with all of your batter. Once you have cooked all your fritters and allowed them to dry over paper towels, serve with any variation (as described above) that your heart desires. :)

Cinnamon Ice Cream? {Please tell me that post is coming this week!) These look like heaven, and I figure that since you stocked up on the smaller cans of pumpkin that it’s one of those you used to make these little bits of deliciousness? I can’t wait to try them!

Pinksuedeshoe- love your blog (everyone go look if you haven’t already). yes, it’s the small can of pumpkin:) and sadly I do not yet have a cinnamon ice cream recipe, i’ve seen it at the store before and I just think it makes sense with pies and fritters:)

I love all things pumpkin flavored and really would love to try these. Oh, and the soft serve pumpkin ice cream at UDF is the best pumpkin ice cream I’ve ever had.

I sent a mobile phone to stay for a long time, and then again and again to dial records, already wanted to make sure I have a wrong number. Actually I know not possible because the phone is special Chong, I set the one-touch dial-up function. Find a person to accompany me to sing to go shopping in sterling silver center; I had to repeatedly listen to a CD. “If I said, is really thought you are unable to breathe. The tears don’t stop, second. How also can not sleep, you…”Eventually, the daughter of tutor knows change fell in love with him and when my birthday he bought me a Thomas Sabo earrings, so he chose her. Hearing this news I wasn’t very shocked; just feel funny, I actually become a kind of soap opera actress. Just think he so unforgivable, dare to tell me.

Thank goodness my husband elect did. thank you for all the delicious reading material!
