I really have NO idea how I stumbled on this recipe from Family Bites, but let me just say...
I am SO glad I did!
Pumpkin Pie Popcorn!
I am NOT kidding...you MUST try this
(are the CAPITAL words getting my point across :)
It is a delicious caramel popcorn with a hint pumpkin pie spice
Pumpkin Pie Popcorn
10 cups air popped popcorn, salted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup light corn syurp
6 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
Preheat the oven to 250°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Coat a large mixing bowl with nonstick cooking spray, and dump the popcorn into the bowl, taking care to pick out and discard any unpopped kernels.In a medium saucepan, whisk together the brown sugar, corn syrup, butter, salt, and 2 tablespoons of water.
Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Continue to simmer, whisking often, and bring to a boil. Allow the mixture to boil for about 2 minutes, whisking occasionally. Immediately remove the pan from the heat, and whisk in the baking soda and pumpkin pie spice.
Quickly pour the hot caramel over the popcorn. Use a rubber spatula to gently fold the caramel into the popcorn, taking care to distribute it as evenly as you can. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 1 hour, stirring and turning the popcorn with a spatula every 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, and place on a cooling rack for 20 minutes. Gently break up the popcorn, and serve.
**I made two batches of popcorn in my Whirly pop, and it was the perfect amount** **I only put in 1t of pumpkin pie spice, so it wouldn't overwhelm my kids :)**
My darling niece Makenna Riley was here with her Mama for a visit.
She loves to model for me, and once she gets going it just comes naturally.
Thank goodness I have this tree in my yard because it is my "go to" backdrop :)
I have so much to learn with my camera, and I am SO excited to be getting the opportunity to do so...I won a spot in Lisa's(The Long Road to China) photography class,
"Get out of the auto zone"!!!
I have admired Lisa's photography skills for so long, and have wanted to take one of her classes. She is so generous to offer a giveaway almost every session for a spot, and this time it was ME (and two other lucky ladies!!)
I am thrilled and cannot wait to switch that camera out of "auto"!!
