      Very creative recipe. Love how it's sweet and then you get the kick of spice. Can't wait to have it again!

        Looks like a dish that one could 'Give Thanks' about.

          I tried to vote again, but lost my comment. I made this and it was amazing. I adjusted the seasoning because my boyfriend doesn't like spicy food and it was very yummy. I cooked the leftover sauce down a little more and turned it into a dip. I love recipes that have many uses.

                                  Great blend of sweet-spice! I tried this last night. I added small pieces of chicken breast (seasoned with the pepper flakes and cayenne), and served it as a main dish. The sweet-hot combo was yummy. I can't wait to eat the leftovers tonight. I'm going to pair it with a Gewurztraminer. I definately will cook this again. Thanks for the creation.

                                    This recipe was a finalist in the Thanksgiving KitchenAid Recipe Contest due to the overwhelming number of responses.
                                    It's a creative way to use the season's spices, and provides a sneak preview of dessert for those who can't wait.
                                    Couple of adjustments: Add salt to balance the sweetness. Infuse spices in cream, bring to simmer till it thickens, before whisking in the pumpkin mix to avoid creating a gooey sauce. Lastly, consider using half measure of creme fraiche instead of cream to add a tang and complexity to the flavor.

                                      I found this recipe too sweet for my taste and would significantly reduce the sugar. Otherwise it was good.
