“My neighbor gave me this recipe, I think she got it from Bon Appetit. This is on the menu for Thanksgiving this year. This needs to chill overnight before serving. Make sure to use canned pumpkin not pumpkin pie filling. Also, if you don't have pumpkin pie spice you can use 1/4 teaspoon each of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Note: After making this for Thanksgiving, I think the spices need to be upped a bit. I would make again, just spice it up more and possibly add some vanilla to the cream while whipping it. Also, I used almost 2 packages of lady fingers for one recipe. There is no way 1 would have been enough.”
