Fantastic! And super easy too! After looking at the $10.95 price tag at William Sonoma I said to myself "I could make that!" and surprising I actually did this time. This recipe is easy and straightforward. I halved it and it still turned out. The only change I made was to add a little bit of ground cloves with the pumpkin spice. I am making a full batch again tonight.

This recipe was very easy, however, I thought it needs more spice and less sugar. I will try it again and decrease the sugar by half a cup, increase the pumpkin one half a cup and the spice by another one half to one tablespoon.

This is the easiest version of this recipe I have ever tried. It is a fantastic versatile recipe. Try it on Vanilla Ice Cream; or bake and mash some sweet potatoes and stir this in. What ever you do, just try it.
