Happy early Thanksgiving, Newget friends. Like all holidays that involve the gathering of friends and family over cheerful wine toasts and a delicious meal, Newget loves Thanksgiving.
What’s on your menu for your big meal of thanks? The usual suspects of turkey and stuffing, of course, (’cause you can’t beat tradition). And mashed potatoes and gravy (a staple!), delicious harvest vegetables and how about some cabbage rolls? Mmmm, can WE come over for dinner? We’ll bring our stretchy pants!
While you’re mulling over that self-invite, can we offer you a delicious suggestion for dessert? How about a side of slices of our seasonal flavor, Perfect Pear Newget, to go with your post dinner coffee and tea?
Or if you’re a pie lover like we are at The Newget Kompany, how about something a little different than the traditional pumpkin and pecan?
Something like.. Newget flavor inspired pie!
Your Friendly Neighborhood Blogger did some kitchen experimenting this past week and came up with a pie inspired by our Berry Blast Newget flavours. And the result was delicious and 100% Dad approved.
Newget Berry Blast Pie with Almond Streusel Topping
Crust: Use your own family secret crust recipe, or buy your favorite grocery store pre-made pie crust (don’t fret, we won’t tell if you don’t tell).
4 cups of berries (Fresh or frozen, we would suggest cranberries, blueberries and maybe even some raspberries)
1/2 cup Minute Tapioca
1 1/2 cup White Sugar
(Mix together, add to pie crust)
Almond Streusel Topping:
1/2 cup Slivered Almonds (blanched)
1/2 cup Flour
1 cup Brown Sugar
1 tbsp Cinnamon
1/2 cup Butter
(Mix together, crumble over the pie before baking)
Bake at 350, for about 45 minutes. You will need to bake about 15 minutes or so longer if you are using frozen berries. And if crust starts to get too brown, cover the edges with tin foil.
For that extra bit of awesome, before serving, add some finely chopped bits of White & Dark Berry Blast on top of the pie when it comes out of the oven. Or if you don’t have any Newget on hand – and we just don’t know why you wouldn’t, online ordering is easy breezy! - melt bakers semi sweet chocolate and drizzle on top!
And there you have it, a delicious Newget inspired pie, just as difficult to resist as its flavour namesake.
Whatever you do for your Thanksgiving long weekend, we hope you have a wonderful fun and food filled family holiday!!
