I made this with some fresh pumpkin that I cooked and pureed. I then poured the whole thing into a round pie pan and baked it. It was like crustless pumpkin pie. I called it pumpkin kugel and served it right along with the main course. I did not bother with the apples, and used soy milk and the brown sugar. It was great hot and I was eating the leftovers cold the next morning. I really liked this.

We were eager to sample the treat and had our desserts just 40 minutes out of the oven with a dallop of sweet vanilla yogurt. The custard was smooth, creamy and rich with a lovely maple flavor that distinguished it from a pumpkin pie filling. In an effort to reduce the calories - made mine with splenda and 1/8 teaspoon of maple extract. What's left from tonight is cooling now and we will have it cold with apples tomorrow. Thanks Sharon! (Update 11/06: Just wanted to say that this has become my standard Thanksgiving and fall dessert. Light, easy and comforting. I usually use Splenda --either white or brown as my sweetner of choice.) Thanks again.

This was very good and incredibly easy to make. I'll be experimenting with a coconut milk-based dairy-free version.
