Pumpkin Pecan Custard

My family loves pumpkin pie flavor, but this is a delicious, creamy, healthier alternative, and we don’t miss the crust at all. It firms up as it cools. —Abby Booth, Coweta, Oklahoma

    Tastes just like pumpkin pie without the crust. Best with a dollop of cool whip.

    The creamy consistency and great pumpkin flavor make this simple recipe a keeper! The crunchy topping made a nice contrast to the smooth custard. A nice twist on the traditional pumpkin pie!
