This was really good. It got great reviews with the family. It is a cross between pumpkin pie and pumpkin cake. More on the pie side. It is really rich but has a great taste. Definetly a holiday dessert. I made it and spooned it into little dessert cups and topped it with the cream topping. It's a keeper and a very unique dessert. Oh, one tip is that you must use unsalted butter. It is way too salty if you don't. Also, I used cool whip for the topping.
NOTE: Don't reate a recipe and less because it is "bad for you" or not healthy. And if you change the measurements and leave out ingredients then don't rate it at all since you are not trying the real recipe.

This was VERY good. I used more whipped cream than called for to lighten up the topping a bit. We loved the richness of this dessert and it was great after a meal cooked on the grill and a long day out in the sun :) It's obviously not as light as a fruit salad or other fruity summer dish, but it worked for us! Will make again. Simple steps and pretty fool-proof directions! Thank you!

If you don't like rich sweet desserts don't eat this! I love them and loved this as did my family!
