[b]Okay - it’s Sunday morning and we all look forward to enjoying the Sunday paper, reading ads, looking at sale papers and at this time of the year, we check out the recipes that are including in the coupon sections that they hand out with the paper.
Of course I am drawn to the recipes -
sure as shootin’
take a look at this recipe:
Pumpkin Apple Pie
8 servings Prep Time:
10 minutes Bake Time:
50-55 minutes Chill Time:
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon Karo® Corn Syrup OR Karo® Lite Syrup
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 can (5 fluid ounces) evaporated milk
1 can (21 ounces) Comstock® or Wilderness® Apple Pie Filling
1 (9-inch) unbaked deep dish pie crust
MIX sugar, salt and pumpkin pie spice in a bowl. Add egg and beat slightly. Add syrup, pumpkin and evaporated milk; blend well.
SPREAD apple pie filling in pie crust. Gently pour pumpkin filling over the apples.
BAKE in a 425°F preheated oven for 15 minutes; reduce oven temperature to 350°F and continue baking for 35 to 40 minutes, or until knife inserted in pie center comes out clean.
CHILL a minimum of 2 hours before serving.
Am I THAT old that I don’t understand this recipe?
Or do they need to find an editor that is not blind and knows something about baking pies?
Or is it me?
Did you read this recipe? Please take a look -
What am I looking at?
1/4 TEASPOON Karo syrup
If their Classic Pumpkin Pie has 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup Karo syrup in the ingredient list, why is this 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 TEASPOON Karo syrup - shouldn’t it read 1/4 CUP???
To me - that cannot be right. So I called their customer service, which of course is closed today and I cannot call again until tomorrow - 9 to 4 Central time.
I honestly can’t wait to hear their response on this one!
Do you realize - if this is incorrect - how many will follow that recipe because it is a Brand Name recipe and those that write them are supposed to put out correct recipes? Not only was it in the coupon section printed that way, but it is also on their site.
I know I am old(er), and I know I’ve been 'round the kitchen a few times (better than being 'round the block a few times!) but in all my years of baking - I have NEVER seen 1/4 TEASPOON of Karo in a pie recipe! Why use it to begin with at that measurement!!!
Maybe it’s me - but I will know tomorrow and I will edit this post and let you know what they say…
