Ingredients

  • 6 small sugar pumpkins, 12 - 16 ounces each, and about 4 inches in diameter (to be used as decorative bowls)
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 Teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 cups pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup nonfat or lowfat evaporated milk
  • 6 tablespoons chopped, toasted California walnuts

Directions

Preparation

8 Place the ramekins on a shallow baking pan. Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce the heat to 325ºF and bake about 25 minutes more, or until a knife inserted in the filling comes out clean, or almost clean.
9 Remove from the oven and transfer to a rack to cool (cool for an hour if baked in pumpkins). Serve the custards warm, sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon of walnuts.
10 Accompany with sweetened whipped cream, if desired. The pumpkin lids may be place atop the pumpkins, or at a jaunty angle along side.
