This morning I mixed up pumpkin pie from the Libby's Pumpkin label. Used a store-bought crust and ended up with way too much filling. In full uh-oh mode, I crushed some gingersnaps, added soft butter for a crumb 'crust,' and in the end had a full pie and six Uh-Oh Pumpkin Tarts, although they're more like muffins with a soft pumpkin top. Who needs Mighty Mouse?

Is anyone besides me picturing Andy Kaufman doing his lip-sync of the Mighty Mouse theme -- "Here I come to save the day."

I made too much pumpkin filling one time. I took the remaining batter, added flour and baking powder and turned it into yummy waffles. They were a hit with the pumpkin pie flavor. The texture was crispy on the outside, and soft inside.

Your solution sounds yummy too. I'm thinking both would be great with a little Chantilly cream on top.

I have always found that the Libby's recipe does make a lot of filling. So you need a really deep dish pie plate. Not the standard Pyrex one.

I used to know all the words to Might Mouse. Used to go around the house singing it until the kids one day told me to SHUT UP! How rude.

Well, with all this talk of Halloween candy, I finally broke down and bought myself a Hershey's Chocolate bar. Dark chocolate. That's it for the year.

I'd get different flavored light yogurts and do up a parfait
using fresh fruits and cereal (Kashi Go Lean Cinnamon Crumble)
and believe it or not, it was GOOD!
Quite satisfying really, and he still requests this for dessert
I sometimes have yogurt for breakfast with blueberries, fresh squeezed lemon juice, and splenda. I've been trying not to keep cereal or breads in the house just to cut back on the carbs a bit. But that does sound good.

Steve,

When I need a simple low carb dessert I make cannoli filling and serve it in a wine glass. Ricotta cheese, whipped cream, almond or vanilla extract, cinnamon and a packet or two of splenda folded together. Garnish can be a few chopped pistachio nuts and or a grating of bitter chocolate.

This stuff is so good it makes me think I'm still in the game!

I also have yogurt (vanilla flavored, but I like the idea of using extract - mine is homemade) for breakfast sometimes, with honey, fresh fruit and and a sprinkle of nuts or granola. It makes a great dessert, too

Dear Niece-in-law emailed me a new recipe for Fresh Apple Cake,
saying that it was the best she's ever had.
Not crazy about the icing.
So for breakfast this morning, we each whacked off a hunk
and scraped off the icing

What was wrong with the icing? The cake looks like something served in the Big Hall for Henry VIII.

I once watch a show many, many moons ago about the food served at the feasts for dear ole Henry. It was cooked with what recipes were available from that time. The stuffed heart of a stag turned me off. But I was interested in the desserts.
