I'm so surprised that I haven't reviewed this. Here I am finally getting a photo uploaded and there is no review! I think I have made this twice and loved it both times. The 2nd time I made it in a hubbard squash that grew in my garden.
This was sooo delicious. The only thing I did different was I added 3tsp pumpkin pie spice instead of the spices individually. My kids loved it as well. I'm sure I'll make it again for Thanksgiving as the pumpkin presentation is impressive! One note, I had a bunch of the filling left over so I put it in a microwave safe bowl and cooked for about 6min on high and that was great as well. I could really imagine this over vanilla icecream! The picture is my very first post of a pic ever! I'm not sure I care for the coloring and when I figure out how to fix it I may come back and do some editing. Thanks for the great recipe!
