No, not black Friday. Although, technically the day after Thanksgiving is black Friday, that's not where I'm going with this. I want to talk to you about the day after and all that food you have leftover. I know, you can eat that Thanksgiving meal once, maybe twice after that actual big meal is actually consumed but after that it's time to get creative.
So, I want to focus on desserts today. On Friday, you'll be looking at a counter full of half eaten pies, cakes and cookies. What to do, oh what to do.
Well, I have a solution for you. Pumpkin pie milkshake. It's so easy, so quick and oh-so-good! Now, I'm not trying to tell you how to make a basic milk shake. I know you are all capable of putting milk and ice cream in that blender and turning it on. I want to tell you how to jazz that milkshake up a bit.
Pumpkin Pie Milkshake
1 Small slice pumpkin pie
1 Cup vanilla ice cream
1/2 Cup milk
2 Tbsp bourbon
1/4 Tsp cinnamon
Caramel, for topping
Whipped cream, for topping
Graham cracker crumbs, for garnish and to rim the cup
Place pumpkin pie, ice cream, milk, cinnamon and salt in a blender. Blend until smooth.
Meanwhile, dip glass into a bowl of caramel sauce then dip into a bowl of crushed graham cracker crumbs. Drizzle caramel sauce down the insides of the glass. Pour the milkshake into the prepared glass. Top with whipped cream, graham crackers and cinnamon, if desired. Serve immediately.
