About

Still have pumpkin around your house that needs to be used? Searching for something more creative than plain pumpkin pie? Here's a rich alternative that's creamy, spicy, sweet, and served fondue style on gingerbread pita chips. It's full of unique flavors like fresh ginger, coriander, cayenne pepper, and brandy, along with cinnamon and vanilla, then topped with maple Cognac whipped cream. My pumpkin mousse was so popular with my friends and family this holiday season. I even had a woman that I work with pay me to make one for her Thanksgiving table. Give it a try and let me know how you like it!
