Baked Pumpkin Pudding

Continuing with the pumpkin theme for Halloween week, this dessert was a hit with DH last night! The recipe came from a search on the Light and Tasty web site. Click on the link to get the recipe. If you don't have egg substitute, then use egg whites, or whole eggs. Another note, my custard cups are all smaller than 8 0z. so I got 7 puddings out of this recipe instead of 5, and the cooking time was a little longer than stated, so go by the "knife in the center coming out clean test" to check for doneness. This dish is like pumpkin pie without the crust, but all the wonderful smell and taste. True comfort!

I took a couple of these little goodies to my Grandmother today and we enjoyed them with a cup of coffee in the dining room at the nursing home. She's a true pie lover and ate every bite! I also took Grandma a little sample of our pear butter and her own container of homemade applesauce. The kitchen ladies will keep it in their frig and serve it to her over the next few days - or sometimes she treats her whole table to a sample of whatever she's been given by friends and family. My grandma always liked to be a hostess in her own home and it's nice when she has a chance to do that on some level at least. As always I was blessed by my time with her. I usually end my posts with Grandma's famous words at the close of a phone conversation, a quirky way she has of indicating that she's all done talking for now...

Well, this is all then.
