This is my cousin's recipe. She makes this every year for Thanksgiving. It is so YUMMY! Please note: Allow to cool so it sets before you flip.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

With a subtle pumpkin flavor, this lovely dessert avoids overwhelming the palate with loads of holiday spices. Instead, each bite melts in your mouth, allowing you to slowly savor its comforting creaminess. The crunch of the nut "crisp" is equally delicate, making this one family-friendly treat that will be right at home on any holiday dessert table or brunch buffet! This recipe won the GRAND PRIZE in the Just A Pinch Family Holiday Traditions Recipe Contest!
