    That recipe does sound yummy, Athena. I'm looking forward to trying it.

    I'm thinking some chocolate chips (substituted for the raisins and pecans) could make a decadent addition, too...

    Thanks for sharing !

    Whenever I make pumpkin pie, I always have some of the filling left over after filling the crusts. I put it in buttered ramkins and bake it up.
    One year my sister, her husband and her 2 kids came for Thanksgiving. Come time for pie after the meal and her daughter says no, I don't like pie crust, so I served her up her own personal pumkin pie /no crust with real whipped cream on top. Needless to say, I was the best aunt ever! She consumed all three of them by the end of the day. :)

    The baked pumpkin pie in the ramkins also makes a great dip for ginger cookies and graham crackers.
