Pumpkin Pudding

Jane Manookin


I love cream cheese. I use it in almost everything. Can't keep it stocked. And I recently rediscovered pumpkin and other winter squashes as a staple for baking, roasting, stewing, casseroling...

A friend and I had found a pumpkin mousse dessert that was to die for but way too complicated, in my opinion. Simplicity and efficiency are my mottoes. So here's my version. I can't resist adding a big scoop of this pudding to my pancake batter. My son loves it! (The pudding AND the pancakes ;)
