I am a huge fan of Lennie's Bob Newhart's Carrot Mold. We have it at least every other week at our house. For Rosh Hashana I wanted to make something with pumpkin, which is one of the traditional foods eaten on that holiday. We adore the carrot mold so much, I basically just substituted fresh pumpkin for the carrots. It was a hit with family and guests. Perfect for Thanksgiving, or if you just love pumpkin!
