Mousse

Cut pie pumpkin in half. Talk all the seeds out and brush with neutral oil. Roast for 45 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a knife.

Let cool. Scoop all the flesh out . Place in a food processor or vitamix. Add all the other ingredients and blend until smooth. Set aside. Chill for at least 2 hours.

If using canned pumpkin, simmer covered, with all other ingredients for 20 minutes, on the stove top.

Start with 1/4 cup of coconut milk. Add more if mousse feels too thick.

Can be made a day ahead. Chill for at least 2 hours. Overnight is best.


Pecan crumble

Put medjool dates, toasted pecans, a pinch of salt in food processor, and pulse a few times. You want the nuts to be copped, not too smooth. Taste for seasoning, and set aside.

Place all the ingredients in a food processor or blender. Blend until creamy. Put into the refrigerator for an hour to set further. Can be made a day ahead.


Layer clear glass starting with the crumble, mousse, then Whip. Continue finishing with the crumble on top. Shave a bit more nutmeg.
