This recipe was absolutely easy and delicious. perferct for Thanksgiving! I truly do not say that about many recipes, especially deserts because I’m more of a savory lover.This recipe was super easy to make, quick, cheap and decadent. It’s something I will make again and again in a pinch. Very light and fluffy- tastes just like pumpkin pie. Next time, I am going to alter this slightly with different ingredients for different flavors of mouse! Yummy!
