This creation is pure decadence. So creamy and rich that you really can't eat more than one slice (1/16th) at a time. I just followed the directions and it came out as perfect as anything you could buy with no center sinking and a clean removal from the pan. I used Rum-Glazed Spiced Pecans for the pecans and with those and the caramel sauce there was sure no whipped cream needed. In fact I do think that whipped cream would detract from the wonderful spice, pumpkin, caramel and nuts which were a completely perfect experience at that point. Made for PAC, Fall 2012.
