Go away Harry Potter. lol, this is mine.
So this is rich and decadent. But snacks should be. Tis good for you too.
Some snacks and meals should be prepared in smaller dishes or ramekins, lasagna or small casseroles, or even a decadent custard. Then you can pull it out of the freezer and enjoy a smaller meal.
1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin, read the ingredients, most are squash.
1 cup half-and-half cream or subistute with a tin of coconut milk.
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons pumpkin cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/4 of ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix all the above ingredients in a bowl until very smooth. Then pour equal amounts into smaller ramekins, 4 to 6 of them. Place the ramekins into a baking pan large enough to hold them, put about 1 inch of hot water in the pan, this will insulate the custards as they bake so they cook evenly. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes….
now, we are not yet finished.
Toppings, there are lots of choices. If you take some pecans and an equal amount of brown sugar, perhaps a 1/3 of a cup, season with a sprinkle of salt and a gob of cinnamon, spread evenly over the custards and bake for another 20 to 30 minutes or so, cooking times vary with the amount of custard in your dish.
Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or Mascarpone cheese.
