Fak Thong Sang-Ka-Ya (Pumpkin Custard)

This custard is spectacular to look at, and wonderful to eat. Makes a great Halloween or Thanksgiving dessert recipe, and a nice alternative to pumpkin pie. Don't be put off by the long baking time - it's actually a really easy recipe to make! A small pumpkin (or pumpkin-like squash) is filled with an easy Thai custard (a healthier and lower calorie version than traditional custard). Serve warm with a splash of maple syrup or brandy and a cup of strong tea or coffee, and ENJOY!
