Hot Pumpkin - not an exact recipe, so feel free to tinker.    

 

For each mug of Hot Pumpkin, use:

 

1-2 heaping tablespoons of cooked pumpkin puree (canned or home made) 

enough half and half to fill the rest of the cup (say, 6 ounces or so, depending on the mug)

sweetener to taste

pumpkin pie spices (I use nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves)

small pinch of salt

splash of vanilla extract  

 

Stir until combined, then warm to the temperature you like.  Serve in a mug, topped with whipped cream if you are feeling really decadent.  A splash of dark spiced rum would also not go amiss...

It's like pumpkin pie in a mug.  Delicious, I shall imbibe his fine potion throughout the depth of winter!  More rum is in order....

 

Yup, exactly!  Pumpkin pie is wonderful stuff, but takes a fair bit of time to bake.  This is most of the good flavor of a pie, but takes less than five minutes to mix and heat up.
