Just look at that slice of pure deliciousness.
That, my friends, is a Pumpkin Flan with Gingersnap Crust.
Ooooooh yeah, you read that right.
This recipe and picture have been sitting on my desk all week taunting me with its golden perfection and caramel smoothness.
I am not ashamed to say that I have planned out my entire Saturday evening around this pumpkin flan. I plan to make it Saturday morning and have some friends over for dinner on Saturday night. Then, after dinner, I will dazzle them with this fine dessert.
I can just see the stars in their eyes as I emerge from the kitchen with the flan. But since it does call for packing on the crust and then inverting onto a serving plate at the last minute, let’s all hope I don’t come out of the kitchen with a shapeless pile of goo and crumbs.
What shall I make for dinner that would be an appropriate precursor to this fab slab of goodness? Perhaps a roast beef in a cooking bag!
