Pumpkin Fritters

1 1/2 c
1/2 c

2 tsp
1/2 tsp
3/4 c

2 tbsp
pumpkin puree
large eggs
unbleached all-purpose flour
baking powder
kosher salt
grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
chopped fresh rosemary
finely ground black pepper
oil for deep frying

Fill a heavy saucepan with a few inches of the oil, and heat it to 340° over medium-low heat, using a candy or frying thermometer to monitor the temperature. In a medium bowl, stir the pumpkin puree with the eggs. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir the dry ingredients into the pumpkin puree, and add the grated cheese, rosemary, and black pepper. Stir just until it comes together; do not overmix. When the oil comes to temperature, scoop tablespoons of dough into the oil. Fry about 6 fritters at a time, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. Fry for 2 minutes, removed. Serve hot.

From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!


Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.
