Episode 12 – Toxic Femininity

Today we discussed an incredibly unpopular topic – Toxic Femininity. We dove into and critically review articles and research, plus the potential real world implications of defining such a phenomenon.

What are we Baking?

Pumpkin Pull-Apart Bread

Butter, for pan1 c. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice, divided
1 (16-oz.) can refrigerated biscuits, halved lengthwise
1 c. pumpkin puree1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1/4 (8-oz.) block cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/4 c. milk

Preheat oven to 350° and butter a 9×5-inch loaf pan. Pour sugar and 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice into a large resealable plastic bag and shake to combine. Add biscuit pieces to bag 2 or 3 at a time, seal, and shake until coated. Set coated biscuit pieces aside on a plate and repeat with remaining pieces. In a medium bowl, combine pumpkin puree, vanilla, and remaining teaspoon pumpkin pie spice. Slather pumpkin filling on a biscuit, then top with another biscuit and slather with more filling. Repeat until you’ve created a stack of biscuits (or two stacks of biscuits). Place biscuit stack on its side in prepared pan, so you see layers of pumpkin filling. Bake until biscuits are golden and puffed, 38 to 40 minutes. Let cool slightly, then turn out onto a plate. 

In a large bowl using a hand mixer on low speed, beat cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add powdered sugar, vanilla, and pumpkin pie spice and mix until combined, then gradually add milk and beat until it’s a pourable consistency. Drizzle glaze over pull-apart bread before serving.
