About: Hi! I am Klinong, that is how my loving family calls me, except my brother, he calls me Krinyol, as I have silly curly hair :) I love Instructables for forever now, especially for the contests ha-ha!, but ...

One of desserts on our Thanksgiving dinner last night :)

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Baking the Pumpkin

Cut the top of the pumpkin as shown, discard inside

Wash and pat dry then replace the top and bake at 400 F for 25-30 mins

Let cool on rack

Mix 1 tbsp ground walnut and icing sugar mixture with 1 tsp of cinnamon powder and sprinkle/brush this mixture inside the pumpkin once pumpkin is room temperature --> Important note, I used this mixture as I had leftover walnut mixture from making macarons, otherwise, before baking, mix 2 tbsp sugar with 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder and sprinkled inside of the pumpkin, then bake.

Step 2: Pumpking Mousse

1/3 c white chocolate chips

2 tbsp milk

1 block cream cheese

1/3 c icing sugar

1/3 c canned pumpkin puree

a couple drops orange oil flavoring (you can use 1 tsp grated orange peel)

1 envelope of dream whip, prepared as directed on the envelope (you can use 1 c heavy cream, whipped)

On high, melt white chips with milk for 1 minute, on microwave, stir and let cool to room temperature

Beat cream cheese with icing sugar until creamy then add in orange oil while keep beating, followed with pumpkin puree

Fold in whipped cream and mix well

Scoop mousse into prepared pumpkin and your dessert is ready :)

Step 3: Happy Thanksgiving~

Enjoy :)

Note: store leftover in the fridge OR serve leftover in bowl/cups

    Just a question, when you say "pumpkin puree", are you referring to just raw pumpkin in a can or do you mean the pre-made "pie mix"?'
