    KLHquilts's Note:

    The good folk at Williams-Sonoma were handing out samples of these a few weeks back. They were (of course) just scrumptious. These were made with Muirhead Pumpkin Pecan Butter (sold at W-S, needless to say), but I would imagine that any good pumpkin butter would do just fine.

      Oh man! This is awesome! I went into WS the other day and had a delightful sample of these. I knew I could make it myself. I made my own pumpkin pecan butter (delish!)and whipped this up. I made mine in ramekins for indiviual desserts for a party I am throwing. It made 7 ramekins, I baked them for only 25 min at 350 degrees. They turned out picture perfect. Everyone is raving about them-I will definintely make again.

      I got this recipe when I worked at W-S one Christmas season it is excellent. I have used Trader Joe's pumpkin butter and it too was couldn't tell the difference. The only thing missing...which I would love to know is the nutritional information. Does anyone know this?

      I got this recipe at a Williams Sonoma store when my son was a baby. He is 13 now and this is still the only thing he demands every holiday. We found pumpkin butter at Trader Joe's is just as good. Our copy is torn and stained, so glad to find it online. Awesome dessert!
