They're so cute, they're practically decor. Although you can use any small edible pumpkins, the Baby Bear works best; other varieties don't hold as much custard.
6 small pumpkins
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup whole milk
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon finely shredded parmesan cheese
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 400°. Bake pumpkins until just tender, about 20 minutes. Cut off tops and set aside, then scoop out seeds.
In a medium bowl, whisk together heavy cream and whole milk with garlic, parmesan cheese, eggs, salt, and white pepper. Pour mixture into a measuring cup.
Arrange pumpkins in a baking dish large enough to hold them without crowding. Divide custard mixture among pumpkins and cover with tops. Pour enough water into dish to reach halfway up sides. Bake until custard jiggles only slightly, about 30 minutes. Remove from dish and let cool 5 minutes.
This is really tasty, great looking, and easy. You can make it after work any day, but it is pretty and fun for company too. Be sure to use pumpkins that are really small, the size of a single bowl serving. If you try to make a 2-person size to share, it won't work.
