Pumpkin Paradise

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a wonderful 4th :-)  We celebrated by shooting off some fireworks with friends.  We were supposed to go to our city’s annual fireworks show on the 3rd, but it was cancelled due to strong winds…boo.   So, instead, we got some milkshakes from Sonic and indulged in some late-night family time.  Does anyone else get the “Milkshake” song stuck in their head every time they hear that word? Every.Single.Time.

Last week, my littlest man started pulling himself up to standing position while holding onto various pieces of furniture.  I don’t think he’ll be walking as soon as his big brother did (9 1/2 months), but we’ll see.

Baby

There has been a lot of this going on lately too.  He will not leave the cat’s food/water alone.  He’s obsessed and the cat is not amused.  Look at his chubby little arms.  I could eat him up.  Oh, AND he hasn’t been teething for the past 2 nights, so YEY!  It’s always nice to have a little break from that ;-)

Baby and Cat Food

I’ve been craving pumpkin lately.  Not sure exactly why, but maybe my body is low on something that pumpkin contains?   No idea.  Growing up, one of my grandmas used to make Plachinda.  It’s basically dough wrapped around a pumpkin filling.  It’s kind of like a portable, little pumpkin pie.  So easy to take and eat on the go.  I didn’t have her recipe, so I decided to use one I found online.  It doesn’t disappoint!  I’ve made these puppies several times already because I’m a pig the kids keep devouring them and beg for more.

I had some leftover pumpkin that I couldn’t let go to waste and the kids were begging to make cookies, so I decided that Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies sounded good.  I found this recipe a couple of months ago and never did get around to trying it, but I shared it with my mom and she tried it right away.  She said the cookies were pretty dang good, so I decided to give them a whirl.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yup, she was right…tasty.  They are so light and fluffy, it’s hard to eat just 3.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies 3

Plachinda (recipe here)

First, make your dough.

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup shortening or cold butter (both work equally well) – I used butter
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt (if using shortening or unsalted butter)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice or white vinegar


Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt (if used), in a large bowl. Cut in the butter/shortening until it looks mealy and is well incorporated (like when making pie dough). Add the egg, water, vanilla, and lemon juice/vinegar and stir to form a dough. It’s going to be all crumbly and messy at this point, that’s OK! Using your hands, pack the dough together into a ball, cover it, and put it in the refrigerator to chill for about an hour.

Now, make your filling.

  • 2 cups pumpkin (either from a pumpkin you’ve roasted, or canned – just make sure you get plain pumpkin puree, not the pumpkin pie mix)
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil or butter
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves or allspice (or, you can use 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice in place of all the spices)


Put everything in a saucepan and bring to a bubble slowly over low to medium heat. If you cook it too fast, the egg will curdle – same thing will happen if you forget the egg and add it in later to the already hot pumpkin, and then you have to pick out little pieces of cooked egg white.  Let it bubble a couple minutes, stirring constantly, then take off the heat and let cool until it’s not steaming anymore.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Line two cookie sheets or jelly roll pans with parchment paper (or lightly grease them). – I tried it both ways and preferred the parchment paper over greasing them.

Sprinkle your table or countertop with flour and roll out your dough. You want to get it about the same thickness you’d use for pie crust, but try to roll it into a square-ish shape instead of a circle. Cut the dough as if you were making a tic-tac-toe board to get nine squares of dough. Drop a spoonful of filling into the center of each square (a little more on the bigger squares, a little less on the smaller ones), then fold the dough over the filling and pinch all the edges shut. If the dough sticks to the counter, slide under it with a metal turner/spatula thingie to loosen it up. Don’t fret if your plachinda don’t look perfect.

Transfer the plachinda to the cookie sheets and cut a little slit in the top of each one to let out steam. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until golden brown (if you want to be extra sure they’re done, and especially that the eggy filling is cooked through, stick an instant-read meat thermometer in the steam vent – they’re done at 160 degrees F). Transfer to a cooling rack or spread-out newspapers to cool.

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  1. I love the little portable pumkin pies, as you called them! So easy and would hit the spot! And yes, every time I hear the word “milkshake,” I immediately start singing that song in my head!

  2. Thanks for the recipes! Come Fall, I will have to try them. Kids are getting big…can’t believe baby’s going to be a 1 year old soon! Thanks for the update!
