I'm glad I chose this to be one of our Thanksgiving Day desserts. You get all of the flavor of a pumpkin pie but in a very, very light and not very sweet mousse filling. And the maple-caramel sauce is so wonderful. It is a beautiful golden brown color. I made the dessert in stages. First night I made the cream puffs. That took about a total of 1 hour from start to finish. I made 16 small cream puffs rather than 8 large cream puffs. The next night I made the pumpkin mousse. That literally took 10 minutes from start to finish. And then the maple-caramel sauce took about 10 -15 minutes. I stored the mousse and the maple-caramel sauce in the refrigerator for 2 days. I assembled the dessert after Thanksgiving dinner. I will make these again and recommend them to others to try.
Oh these were so good! My favourite dessert is profiteroles and my husband's is pumpkin pie, and these are the perfect mix of both. I'm not waiting for thanksgiving to make these again! Thanks for sharing.
