“Oh how we love pumpkin season. You did know this gourd-ish squash has its own season, right? Winter, Spring, Summer, pumpkin…. We anxiously anticipate it every year.”

Pumpkin Pie MoussePumpkin Pie Mousse‘This is the best pumpkin pie mousse I have ever had‘, declared Mr PAB. Never mind that it was the first time I’ve made it. Chances are slim that he would have opted for it on a menu elsewhere. The kids asked for seconds before they hit the bottoms of the first servings!! Pumpkin Pie Mousse That good! Such fun when a dessert experiment is successful. I have been eternally charmed by the humble pumpkin. With the pumpkin pie spice & walnut cake with buttermilk frosting, roasted pumpkin soup, then pumpkin brownies {yet to be blogged}, praline pumpkin pie, pumpkin pots de creme, pumpkin pie tartlets and pumpkin custard pies under my belt, I bought another huge chunk of pumpkin the other day.

Pumpkin loveWith winter almost here I was in the mood to make a pumpkin peanut butter soup. Once the pumpkin was roasted, the day went rather busy. The well roasted veggie was hastily packed away, ziplocked and refrigerated for ‘tomorrow’. Yet tomorrow never came!

pumpkinA million school holidays, the onset of the festive season, Diwali {read more food} and winter clothes to be unpacked made the pumpkin less urgent. Not forgotten though! Then the doodling teen and her father went for a quick trip to HKG. I thought I’d have SO much time. Boy, was I wrong!!

Pumpkin Pie Mousse Then I thought of a welcome dessert, something pumpkin. A pie? Niyet! Too much work and no time. Plus gluten free pie crust scares me at times. With homemade pumpkin puree having the tendency to leave some watery liquid, I’d rather experiment in a better frame of mind. The morning gone, no time to bake, a mousse it was to be.

Pumpkin Pie Mousse This was fun to do. I went with very basic pantry ingredients, happy in the thought that healthy pumpkin was the base. I added the gelatin on a whim. Have to say that it added just the right airy, light moussey texture once the mousse was set!
