My wife is American & I make pumpkin pie for thanksgiving. I gave this recipe a try for a change & it tastes fantastic. My wife took one to work & I now have to give this recipe to 8 nurses as they all loved it which says a lot as they had never tried pumpkin before. I did tweak the seasoning to what I use when I make pumpkin pies. - 18 Oct 2014
