They look daunting but they really are simple to make and they arent over sweet either, kind of just right with the whipped cream, sure are a slice of summer, wish I had a slice right now!

I really should tell this story, one year for mothers day I made one, well I dont know what was going on at the time but the pavlova sank, about 2" thick, just flattened out. I freaked, then had a brainwave. I spread cream across it and strawberries, dusted it with confectioners sugar and then rolled it up like a jelly roll. Dusted it with more sugar and added strawberries, grated some chocolate over it and mum thought it was the fanciest pav she had ever had lmao
She was dissapointed the next year when I didnt produce another one lmao lmao lmao

Henny Penny the cans of pumpkin we sold for a little while in coles many yrs ago were just the standard size, around 400g and the same for the large can of evap milk, just get a 400g one (400-440ml, the baked bean size can) Henny I never bother converting the cup and spoon sizes, have never had a problem, there isnt much difference. If i were to make schnookies pumpkie pie recipe using fresh cooked pumpkin Id estimate about 420g to be safe, if thats any help, just what Id do. Very Happy

Oh. And YUM.

Thanks for the tip, HP - I found the recipe.

And added it to my To Do - SOON list.

In fact, since it only makes one pie, I might use the pecan topping on one of my pumpkin pies TODAY.

Just to make sure it tastes okay, before I put it on a cheesecake pie.

And another thing: I'm liking the IDEA of cheesecake PIE, though I haven't yet tasted the actuality. The cookie crusts that are normally on cheesecake can go wrong in so many ways and are often so sweet they take away from the flavors of the cheesecake. And it's a pita to make.

I copied the recipe across, I used to love Southern Living magazine, they get good recipes and this one looks yummy. Im thinking of inviting friends for dinner saturday night to give me an excuse to make it LOL. Im wondering about making a cookie crust using a mix of plain and ginger nut cookies, what do you think?

Pumpkin pie and pumpkin pie with the pecan pie topping from the cheesecake pie recipe.

I noticed, though... the list of ingredients says, "4 eggs, divided" but the instructions say nothing about using them in a divided fashion. scratch

I had a moment of "pause"... the pies (2 of em) take 4 eggs. The pecan TOPPING for one of those pies takes 3 eggs.
Shocked

gimpy cat, I've improved my choc chip hot cross buns since that attempt. Must have have glace cherry pkt. left from Christmas so chucked those in.

Family not too keen on candied mixed peel so I finely dice dried apricot instead. Fruit ones ususally sultanas [raisins], currants & dried apricot. You know glace pineapple would be nice too!!

Yep, probably make them & freeze them!! They are sooo yummy fresh out of the oven with the fragrance of cinnamon, dried fruit & chocolate!! They're huge too!! chef2

85gm butter, melted [1/3 cup]
1 egg

I don't add the additional sugar!

Oh you rock Murray Tart! I have a question though, for the dough to rise does it have to be in a warm place? I havent made anything with yeast in over 20yrs and Im wondering if my cold house would inhibit rising?

Oh I have heard what we call castor sugar referred to as Bakers Sugar and Superfine in the states if thats any help to people

gimpy cat, yeast needs warmth. I've been using a trick someone else suggested that works on sunny days. I cover the bowl with cling wrap & then a t-towel & place it in the car in the sun! Very warm days 20 minutes is heaps!! Cling wrap keeps the car from smelling like yeast!!LOL

In house when the wood heater is going I put it close to that. In the kitchen I put a few inches of very warm water in a very large bowl then place the bowl with dough in that & cover with the t-towel. If need be change the water. Make sure water doesn't come up to top of dough bowl.

For second rise I put the baking trays on the oven while it is pre-heating. Usually pull out the griller tray & set baking tay on there, lots of warm air coming out there! Not relevant in the U.S., stoves are different!

Remember to always cover with clean light t-towel!
