Try It Tuesday, Early Edition

Try it Tuesday has come early this week. I have something else planned for tomorrow, so you get to see my latest Pinterest finds today!

 

Thanks to fall and the people I follow on Pinterest, today is all about pumpkin goodies!

 

The first I found from a healthy-eating site; a pumpkin pie shake! It looked yummy and I couldn’t wait to try it! I gathered my ingredients and whipped it up.

Can you see the Tetris bookshelf in the background?

 

I followed the recipe exactly and used Huff the Hubs as my guinea pig.

I need fancy glasses. And umbrellas.

It was… pretty good. If I were to do it again, I’d add in more ice (mine was very liquidy) and a Splenda packet (the unsweetened almond milk was very bland). It wasn’t awful but it wasn’t my fave.

 

The next recipe I tried was for pumpkin biscuits!

 

Here’s the original pin:

Nom, nom, nom.

 

I was a little afraid of making homemade biscuits. I’ve heard that homemade biscuits aren’t as flaky as the canned kind. I was hoping and praying that my biscuits didn’t turn out like my first loaf of bread.

About to go in the oven!

 

The original recipe said it would make 7-8 biscuits. I was able to make 10! Actually, I probably could’ve made more but I was running out of time (and I was so hungry I almost ate the dough) so I chunked the last little bit. (Wasteful, I know. But you’ve obviously never been around me when my blood sugar is low.)

I let them back for about 11 minutes and, thankfully, they turned out flaky and delicious!

Well butter my butt and call me a biscuit!

 

There was also a recipe for maple butter, but I didn’t make that. I did, however, use Laughing Cow Cinnamon Cream Cheese Spread on one (yes, one of the many biscuits I ate) and it was DELICIOUS!
