    I had already had this dessert from a friend & wanted the recipe so I searched here for it. It was DELICIOUS but I was concerned about the raw egg SO I elimintated the egg whites into the pumpkin mix & substituted HALF of a 8oz. container of Cool Whip and gently folded in. It was PERFECT and NO raw eggs.  -  21 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
