Pumpkin Custard

My internet was down ALL DAY yesterday! GRRR!

Here is the recipe for the Pumpkin Custard that I made the other day. It was so quick and easy to put together on a busy day! Jerry wasn't too keen on it, said it tasted like bread pudding to him. He likes his puddings, cobblers, pies, etc. cold rather than warm too. Harriet and I both enjoyed it though! I didn't put any whipped cream on it but that would have been divine! I even liked it cold from the refrigerator the next day! :)

2 cups pumpkin puree
1 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup milk
3 eggs, lightly beaten
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use a whisk to blend all ingredients well. Pour into a well-buttered 1 1/2-quart baking dish. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

I sprinkled a little brown sugar over the top when there was about 10 minutes left to give it that creme brulee look! ;)

That looks fabulous, Candy. We love pumpkin...as soon as I get a chance to cook one up I will try this. Thanks!

That sounds so delicious! I have always used a recipe that calls for baking the custard inside a pumpkin - which, of course, is great. But this would be a whole lot easier! Glad your internet is back!

Mooberry Farmwife,
I love everything pumpkin too! This was surprisingly easy and very tasty!

Susan,
Baking in the pumpkin would be pretty cool though!
