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.

Inspired by classic cream puffs, this recipe is a wonderful treat. I've served it at Cub Scout banquets, birthday parties and holidays. I'm a regular baker, and this dessert is one of my all-time favorites.
My favorite dessert is Creme Brulee, so I quickly learned how to successfully make this on my own. Recently I was at a party where the guests finished off their own desserts "broiling" the sugar on their portions with a small torch. What a great idea! —Joylyn Trickel
The custard-like ice cream is so rich and creamy that it tastes like you fussed for hours. But it's easy to make...and pretty, too. I like to serve it with chocolate fudge sauce. -Irene Yoder

When I was living with my mother, she loved custard,, so I'd make this comforting dessert each week. Without leftovers, there's no chance of getting tired of this treat!—Billie Bohannan, Imperial, California
Melted ice cream is a key ingredient in this delectable golden cake. It's been a family favorite for years and we love the pecan praline flavor. It's also a joy to serve to company since it's not tricky to fix but always wins raves! —Joan Hallford North Richland Hills, Texas
