Pumpkin Dessert

Posted by Lori:
This pumpkin dessert is from a family cookbook made many years ago.  It's my great-aunt's recipe. Making dishes from family members that have passed on always give me a special feeling, do they you?  It's kind of like you have  a part of them back with you.  It's neat how family recipes are passed on generation after generation.  Maybe that's why I like the quote, "The kitchen is the heart of the home."
