THIS DESSERT is a refreshing departure from pumpkin pie, but it has the same good old-fashioned flavor.
I like to make custard. It's a cinch to prepare even on your busiest days and especially good after a hearty holiday meal, when just a touch for the sweet tooth is all you need.

This rich, silky custard has a hint of coffee flavor and it's is draped with a luscious caramel sauce. It is a divine ending to a holiday meal or as a simple coffee and dessert get-together with friends.Mariela Petroski, Helena, Montana
Just when I thought nothing could beat the specialness of creme brulee, I created this decadent version that stars rich chocolate and sweet raspberries. Cracking through the top reveals a smooth and rich custard everyone enjoys. —Jan Valdez, Chicago, Illinois
