Ghostly Custards Recipe

You'll hear shrieks of delight when these not-so-spooky pumpkin custards appear for dessert. These ghosts will be gobbled up in no time! —Suzanne Strocsher, Bothell, Washington
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 40 min. + cooling YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups whipped topping
  • Miniature semisweet chocolate chips


  • 1. In a bowl, combine the first seven ingredients; beat on low until smooth. Place eight ungreased 4-oz. custard cups in two 8-in.-square baking pans. Fill each cup with 1/2 cup pumpkin mixture. Pour hot water around cups into the pans to a depth of 1 in. Bake at 325° for 40-50 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Remove from pans to cool on wire racks. Before serving, top each with dollops of whipped topping in the shape of a ghost; add chocolate chips for eyes. Yield: 8 servings.
