Eat cold. I am a sugar addict who has to NOT eat added sugars but I love pumpkin pie. I tried this exactly as stated but I took out the brown sugar and used cumin instead of lemon pepper. I also used my own pumpkin that I cooked (a giant carving pumpkin...which seemed to be fine). I would definitely recommend letting this COOL and eat refrigerated. I found it to be much more satisfying cold the next day than when it was fresh and warm. I think the salt proportions taste just right when cold but when warm I found myself wanting to add salt and still not finding it right. I will definitely make again - I might increase the cayenne slightly. SO TASTY and it hit the pumpkin pie spot without making me feel like a crazy person who needs to eat the whole thing and feel shitty after. :)

Okay, an addendum: I needed a jazzy appetizer and this being the holidays I didn’t have the energy to go searching, so I made this pumpkin filling, just adding a little grated cheese, and baked in a dish without the crust. Wow, a great spread/ dip that is healthy, unusual, and everybody loved

I served this for Christmas night supper, along with a kale salad. It was special and festive. The texture was light, and the varied spices worked well together. The only changes I made were a little more salt, and I added red peppers to the onion mix. I will make this again for sure.

This has Autumn written all over it. I was happy with the end result, though I did play around with it a bit, tasting as I went. I found it quite lacking in salt for my palate, so I added nearly four times the amount listed. Still not satisfied with the salt level, I added about 3 oz microplaned parmigiano reggiano cheese, which also added a bit of umami to the custard. I did not have cayenne pepper on hand, so used another pepper for heat. Lastly, I doubled the amount of smoked paprika for the nut topping. I had not used yogurt in a custard type pie before, but it worked beautifully. Served it to guests at a Friendsgiving party. Several people went back for seconds.
