This recipe appeared in my very first cookbook that I wrote with Nancy Gerlach, The Fiery Cuisines, in 1984. I still make it whenever I roast a turkey.
I don’t always serve pumpkin pie for desert at Thanksgiving. Sometimes I make a pumpkin cheese cake, muffins, or this spicy soup with an island taste. If you don’t want to use pumpkin, any winter squash will do. Use butternut, acorn, or Hubbard, or for preparation ease, use canned pumpkin puree.
Since preparing a Thanksgiving feast on a barbecue isn’t traditional, why finish it up with the usual pumpkin pie? This layered dessert from Nancy Gerlach is unique in that it can be cooked on the grill like the rest of the meal. The finished dessert has a cake-like topping and a chocolate syrup which can be served with whip cream on top. Place it on the grill while you are indulging with your turkey, and it will be ready to serve at the end of the meal.
I make this every Thanksgiving that’s held at our house, and a few times in the kitchens of friends. It’s so simple that it really doesn’t need a recipe, but here’s one anyway.
