My own Recipe for Pumpkin Mousse
1 Pint of Whipping Cream
1/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons of Splenda
1/2 cup of Pumpkin Puree
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Pour the whipping cream in to a mixer fitted with a whisk attachment . Turn on to med speed and whisk about 3 min. till the cream comes to a soft peak when you lift the whisk out of the bowl.Add remaining ingredients and whip till combined and the mixture is stiff. Don't over beat. Test the flavor and adjust the sweetness or the spice level to your liking. It is best to serve right away. But you can save it for later in the refrigerator, a late night snack maybe? Serves 4 small servings or 2 large.
