Top Review by JYS

Made these after Thanksgiving with leftover pumpkin. Omitted pecans. Very easy to make, taste delicious. My daughter (a teacher) brought a dozen to the secretaries at school. They were stunned by the orange colour but devoured them in minutes. Glad I made an extra batch. They lasted one day at home.
