Pumpkin Pie Shots


After all the kids have passed out from their sugar high is the perfect time to celebrate Halloween "adult style" by popping a couple of these Pumpkin Pie Shots.  But then again, maybe you'd like to take one or two before the long night of trick or treating.  ;)  This festive shot will warm you right up from its creamy mixture of Bailey's Irish Cream, pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spices.  And of course... the pie crust rim of crushed ginger snap cookies!  My new home and I are hosting Thanksgiving this year.  Mom will be ending the night with the real pumpkin pie, but I might just have to kick off the evening with a tray of these to get the family funnies rolling.

What you'll need: makes 4 - 6 shots

2 jiggers Bailey's Irish Cream
2 jiggers Vanilla Vodka
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
pinch ground cloves
1/4 cup crushed ginger snap cookies (gluten free from Trader Joe's)
 1/4 cup coconut milk

To start, prep your shot glasses by dipping the rim in coconut milk and then crushed ginger snaps.  Set aside.

In a small bowl, mix together the pumpkin puree, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.  Set aside.  In a cocktail shaker filled with 3/4 of ice, pour in the Bailey's, Vodka and spoon on top the pumpkin puree mixture.  Close and shake for about 30 seconds or until all is evenly incorporated and lump free.  Pour the mixture into the shot glasses and bottoms up!
