I'm not a big pumpkin fan, so this review should be read with that in mind. First the good: super easy and fast. That said, it tastes fine - just like a pumpkin pie, but the texture is mushy...almost like pudding.
I have a concern about this recipe. I cannot find plain pumpkin in a 29 oz can...pumpking pie FILLING comes in a can about that size...but due to the ingredients in the recipe, I don't think the pie filling is what's being asked for. The recipe looks delicious and I was planning to bake it today. Please advise if the pumpkin amount is correct. Thanks so much!
The recipe suggests sprinkling cinnamon on the whipped cream before you serve it. A mint leaf is also attractive.
These are really yummy. I may never make Pumpkin pie again. These are great sellers at bake sales.

Let’s be honest – I’m always looking for quick meal ideas. By the time I get home from work, I have about a half hour to throw dinner together and get it on the table. Most (okay, ALL of the time) I have an unhappy one-year-old pulling at my leg as if to say, “Mom, why is there not food on my high chair tray yet?!” So, when it comes to meals, the quicker the better.

ginger and sesame to a
variety of meals.
