Latinize Thanksgiving Dessert

I heard a feature on the news radio about keeping Thanksgiving mostly traditional and not going too crazy on the gourmet. To that end, the guy being interviewed said every Thanksgiving table needs pie.

Me gusta pie. I do. But, my Cuban-ish Thanksgiving table has Pumpkin Flan, not pie. If a guest wants to bring a pie, fabuloso. But, my energy and effort goes to the flan I am famous for each Thanksgiving.

So, for your pleasure, once again, here is the Pumpkin Flan with Gingersnap Crust recipe, and a collection of other good pumpkin flan recipes to try.

And, gente, no matter what you have for dessert on Thursday, may your Thanksgiving be warm, wonderful and flan-tastic.

The Best Pumpkin Flan Recipes

Really simple Pumpkin Flan recipe from Nicole Presley that includes cajeta and pomegranate seeds. Que pretty.

Super easy Pumpkin Flan recipe for individual-sized ramekins from the talented Maura Hernandez. Makes 6.

Bren Herrera has a site called Flanboyant Eats. She is the Cuban queen of Flan. Try her Pumpkin Spice Flan — or any of the others on her site.

Now, here is one I would consider: Southwestern Pumpkin Flan with chiptole and cayenne. It’s by La Martha, so it has to be good, right?

And, finally here is one is Spanish, a pumpkin and cream cheese flan (Flan de Queso) one that looks decadent.
