Make on Fresco
Serves 8-12 Prep Time 20 minutes   Cook Time 1 hours 30 minutes   Rated:

We are not big on Halloween in Australia, and I personally don't get into 'spooky' food, but I have always been big on Pumpkin Pie…something that pretty well fills my kids with suitable Halloween style horror. Vegetables? In dessert? But trust me, they'll never know…just call it Halloween Cloud Pie, or Orange Heaven Cheesecake. Personally…I am good with pumpkin in most things. So..er…Happy Halloween, in the best way possible.
