Episode 5: Call Me Butter [Beer], Cuz I’m On A Roll

Happy spooky season, y’all! 🎃🕸️🕷️🦇⚰️👻

After a brief hiatus, Baking and Boozing is back! I knew from day 1 that I wanted to invite this particular friend to be my guest for this October episode of spooky baking, and she brought the house down with her witch hat, spooky clothes, funny faces, and her absolutely amazing personality 💜

Check out these delicious Harry Potter themed treats!

Pumpkin Pasties Ingredients

15 ounce can pumpkin

12 ounce can evaporated milk

100g (1 cup) sugar

28g (2 TBSP) butter, melted

14g (1 TBSP) butter, melted

2 eggs

½ teaspoon cardamom

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon allspice

1 teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon cloves

1 teaspoon ginger

2 boxes pre-made pie crust

OPTIONAL: turbinado

  • Preheat oven to 425ºF.

  • Combine eggs and sugar until light and fluffy.

  • Mix in spices, melted butter, and pumpkin.

  • Pour in evaporated milk. Mix well.

  • Pour mixture into a greased pan and bake for 15 minutes.

  • Roll out pie crust and then use a cookie cutter to cut circles.

  • Remove the pumpkin from oven. Allow it to cool.

  • Reset the oven to 350ºF.

  • Scoop pumpkin onto half of each dough circle. Fold the pasties in half and then pinch the sides to seal. Use a fork to press down on the outer edges of each pasty and brush with melted butter.

  • Slice a few vents on top. OPTIONAL: sprinkle with turbinado sugar

  • Place the pasties on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and then bake for 12 minutes.

NOTE: Make half of this recipe. There’s too much filling for two pie crusts. (Unless you plan on snacking 7 times.)


170 grams cream soda

57 grams butterscotch liqueur (butterscotch schnapps)

28 grams vodka

5g pure vanilla extract

60 grams heavy cream, chilled,

26 grams butterscotch sauce, or more to taste

12 grams granulated sugar, or to taste

  • Whip the heavy cream in a mixer or by hand until it just starts to thicken.

  • Add in the butterscotch sauce and sugar (we omitted this from our recipes), then whip until the cream has thickened.

  • Fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.

  • Drizzle butterscotch in beer stein for decoration.

  • Pour the cream soda, butterscotch liqueur, vodka, and vanilla extract into the shaker. Stir with a long spoon, then strain into a glass or mug.

  • Spoon the butterscotch whipped cream over the top of the drink, lightly stirring it.

  • Drizzle more butterscotch sauce over the top to garnish.
