Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Pie
I can remember when my kids were young we would carve pumpkins and roast the seeds with a lot of spices over them and the smell of spices all over the house. Both of our boys love pumpkin pies and having this recipe available for them to make pumpkin pies and freeze the mashed pumpkin to make anytime of the year is the best.
I will share with you a recipe that got pastry in it, you may like to make and share with your families.Traditional Newfoundland Beef Stew with Pastry
You can have moose meat, pork or chicken for this same recipe if you don't want or like beef. Having anything with pastry is so delicious and I'm sure you would agree, enjoy this recipe and many more that i have to offer here on Bonita's Kitchen website.

If you are like me I will eat pumpkin pie anytime of the day, and I’m sad that the only time you can have pumpkin pie is in the fall, thanksgiving and halloween. This is why i love to roast my own sugar pumpkin so I can freeze the meat to have anytime of the year. 🙂 This recipe for pumpkin pie is super easy but it do have many steps to get to the final result, be patience and make it on a day where you have more time to spare. When you have your sugar pumpkins roasted and all separated you can pull out a small bag of mashed pumpkin and make anytime of the day or year.
This recipe can be doubled and leave out the cream cheese if you don’t like that mixture. There are so many things you can make with pumpkin, Muffins, custard and pumpkin soups. So stocking up of the mashed pumpkin and enjoying it all year around sounds good to me. I’m going to share a few more links to other recipes on http://bonitaskitchen.com
