PUMPKIN. It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
Okay, not really, (don’t get me wrong I LOVE me some pumpkin!) but at least when I whip up a batch of this creamy pumpkin mousse with maple whipped cream, it sure does FEEL like I’m celebrating!!!
Consider this creamy pumpkin mousse with maple whipped cream. It’s delicious, decadent, and so dreamy.
There’s a lot of times when a recipe comes out of my kitchen, but I’m on the fence about it. I’m not sure how everyone else will like it. Or if they’ll even like it at all.
This can be frustrating because I spend time creating something new in the kitchen and I have no idea how it turned out. But that couldn’t be further from the truth with this one.
