My Pumpkin Pie Blizzard....
Because I want it NOW!
When you live in the country, you try things. Like pumpkin pie blizzards. I just knew I could copycat the recipe or at least get it pretty darn close. You can too!
Pumpkin Pie Blizzard
vanilla ice cream
sweetened pumpkin pie filling
pumpkin pie spice
You could make this by hand with a spoon and cup if you have no blender.
In your blender add several scoops of vanilla ice cream and a little glug of milk.
Blend on low or on pulse. You want it fairly stiff. If it's too runny, add more ice cream.
Now add a cookie. I added half of a homemade oatmeal cookie, but you could add a shortbread cookie or any type of cookie you want. Don't crunch it up, just break it in half and let the blender do the rest. Pulse the blender a tiny bit. Lastly, add a good glop of sweetened, spiced pumpkin pie filling. I only had the plain canned pumpkin so I simply added the sugar and spices according to the pie directions on the back of the label. Don't add the egg or milk. Pulse a tiny bit. You want to see the pumpkin swirled in. Pour into a glass. For the Big Ta-da, add a generous squiggle of whipped cream to the top and a sprinkle of nutmeg or pumpkin pie spice. EAT!
