Pumpkin Roll

INGREDIENTS

3 large eggs

1 cup granulated sugar

2/3 cup canned pumpkin

1 teaspoon lemon juice

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 cup pecans, finely chopped

1 cup confectioners’ sugar, plus more for
sprinkling

Two 3-ounce packages cream cheese, room temperature

1 stick butter (1/2 cup), room temperature

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 17 1/2- by 12 1/2-inch jellyroll pan.

With an electric mixer, beat the eggs, granulated sugar, pumpkin and lemon juice until smooth. Sift together the flour, ginger, salt, baking powder and cinnamon. Add the sifted ingredients to the egg mixture and blend until fully combined. Spread the batter in the jellyroll pan. Sprinkle the dough with the chopped pecans. Bake until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean, 14 minutes. Let the cake cool in the pan for 5 minutes.

Invert the cake onto a wire rack. Sprinkle some of the confectioner’ sugar on a large tea towel and carefully transfer the warm cake to the towel, folding the sides of the towel over the cake. Roll the cake up in the towel and cool in the refrigerator thoroughly for about 45 minutes.

With an electric mixer, combine the confectioners’ sugar, cream cheese, butter and vanilla and beat until smooth. Carefully unroll the cooled cake and spread the mixture on top of the cake. Gently re-roll the cake up and refrigerate it until you’re ready to slice and serve. Dust with confectioners’ sugar just before serving.

Skinny Cranberry Swirl Cheesecake Squares

INGREDIENTS

Cranberry Sauce

3/4 cup fresh cranberries

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup water

1/2 teaspoon fresh orange zest
Crust

3 oz gingersnap crumbs (from 12 gingersnap cookies)

1 oz pecans, crushed

1 1/2 tablespoons light butter, melted
Cheesecake

8 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

6 oz nonfat Greek yogurt

2 egg whites

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon flour

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and position a rack in the middle of the oven. Line an 8×8-inch baking pan with waxed paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang on all sides.

Begin by preparing the cranberry sauce. Combine the cranberries, sugar, water, and orange zest in a small saucepan. Cook together until the cranberries begin to burst and the mixture turns syrupy, about 6-7 minutes. Remove from the heat, allow to cool as you prepare the remaining ingredients.

Combine the gingersnap crumbs, crushed pecans, and light butter in a small bowl. Stir together to moisten the crumbs, then pour into the prepared baking pan. Spread in an even layer, using the bottom of a drinking glass to help ensure that the crust is even.

In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract with an electric mixer until smooth. Add in the Greek yogurt, egg whites, lemon juice, and flour, mixing until just combined. Pour the cheesecake mixture into the pan, over the crust, and smooth with a spatula.

Add the cooled cranberry mixture to a food processor, and puree until smooth. If the mixture is too thick, add 1/2 tablespoon water. Use a spoon to drop the cranberry sauce over the cheesecake, and then swirl the cranberry sauce with a butter knife.

Bake the cheesecake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes. Allow the cheesecake to cool to room temperature, and place in the fridge for several hours to get well chilled. Once chilled, cut into squares and serve.

 
 
On that sweet note, we wish you a very happy Thanksgiving! We hope your day is full of great food, family, friends, and décor, of course!
 
All the Best,
 
The Sheffield Furniture & Interiors Team

Time to Shine

From runways to recliners, metallics are making their mark as the hot new trend that’s stealing the show this fall. Gold, silver, and bronze tones are excellent for accent pieces as well as for bold and luxurious full room statements. We love this fall trend and we’re sure you will, too! For some inspiration, check out our photos and see how we’re using metallics in our designs:

Gold is by far the most opulent of metallics. Use of this metallic hue increases the sense of warmth and luxury in your interior.

In Their Own Words: Our Designers Talk about How They Use Stickley in Their Client’s Homes

At Sheffield Furniture, Stickley is always number one!  It’s no surprise that our team of talented interior designers furnish many of their client’s homes in timeless Stickley fashion.  Whether it is just one piece to help tie everything together or an entire home filled with Stickley Furniture, our exceptional designers know just how to make the Stickley brand shine in anyone’s home.

 

Below, our designers talk about why Stickley is Sheffield’s most popular brand and we showcase some of our favorite Stickley installations.

 

All the best,

Sheffield Furniture & Interiors

“This client plans to purchase a small 1930s DC area home in the future and wanted to decorate his apartment with that goal in mind. Stickley Mission pieces on a smaller scale fit the bill. They were handsome and grounding for the clients always growing art & artifacts collection. The end product turned out as interesting and warmly inviting as the client himself.”

 

Patrick Prudhomme, Designer at our Rockville Showroom

stickley_08

“This lovely couple decided, when renovating their Colonial Revival home, to incorporate significant contemporary architectural elements. While they loved the juxtaposition of the traditional & contemporary, they needed to find furniture that could hold its own. We found that Stickley’s Modern collection combined with Stickley’s classic Mission Collection (the Morris chair shown) created an artful bridge between the differing styles. The result is young and fresh and perfectly comfortable in the original traditional envelope of their home.”

 

Patrick Prudhomme, Designer at our Rockville Showroom

“I love working with Stickley! They make such a high quality, solid wood product at an amazing price. This dining room group, from their Classic Mahogany collection, is one of my favorites. The slimmer classic line makes it ideal for small to mid-size dining rooms found in many homes today. If a client is looking for elegance, quality and value, all made in the USA, this is the brand for them!”
