So easy to make, and a wonderful change from pumpkin pie. A great potluck dessert as well during the holidays. Folks love it and ask for the recipe every time. I do like to add the spices I normally use in my pumpkin pie for the best flavor.

This is nothing less than a 5 star dessert! I make it a minimum of 4x per Thanksgiving/Xmas holiday (and usually many times in-between) and have for the past 7 years. I don't know if I would be allowed to attend our family Thansksgivings without it because many years ago it replaced the traditional pumpkin pie! Everyone looks forward to this dessert and newbies ALWAYS request the recipe. I even started using this as my preferred "Wedding Shower" recipe to share with new brides :)

Someone said this had no taste. Looking at the Recipe, I would agree. You have to add the spices, if you buy the Pumpkin that doesn't have the spices already in it..............I'm sure that's what she did. I would add spices to this........cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, pumpkin pie spice......to give it more pumpkin taste. I will make this, it look's really good! Add spices to taste!
