Pumpkin Dessert

Time for some LONG overdue posts.

This is a recipe my Grandma H used to make. I remember the first time I tried it. It made quite the impression.

I haven’t made it in years, but recently prepared it for my husband’s family while visiting them. They loved it, too, and it was quick–very quick–to vanish.
