Pumpkin Pudding Featured

We used jack-be-littles, but any type of small pumpkin can be used in this recipe

    Yield Makes 4 cups
    Serves 6


    6 small pumpkins (about 1/2 pound each)
    2 tablespoons granulated sugar
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/2 cup firmly packed dark-brown sugar
    3 tablespoons cornstarch
    1 1/2 cups half-and-half
    3 large egg yolks
    1 tablespoon molasses
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup boiling water
    1/2 cup Pumpkin Puree, or canned pumpkin puree
    1/2 cup heavy cream
    Puff-Pastry Leaves


    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut tops off pumpkins; scoop out and discard seeds. In a small bowl, combine granulated sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle inside pumpkins, and replace pumpkin tops. Place on a baking sheet, and bake until tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from oven; let cool.
    Combine brown sugar and cornstarch in a large heat-proof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Add half-and-half, egg yolks, molasses, and salt; cook, whisking constantly, until mixture starts to thicken. Add the water in a slow stream, whisking constantly. Stir in pumpkin puree; cook until very thick, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat; let cool slightly.
    When ready to serve, whip cream to soft peaks. Serve pudding in baked pumpkins.
