      Great taste! I couldn't for the life of me find pumpkin puree, so ended up using canned yams, which worked well! Thanks Paula! Made for ZWT3!

      This was so good! Made it for ZWT Three. As Kittencal says, it does need more sugar. I used a full half cup brown sugar in the flan as well as the white sugar and using some brown sugar on the bottom of the cups. I also used more spice because in Pumpkin Pie itself, I tend to have and enjoy a heavy hand with the spices. I added 1/2 tsp of Ginger to it. This is wonderful!
