  • 1/4 c Finely chopped yellow onion
  • 2 ts Flour
  • 1/2 c Whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 c Pureed pumpkin (canned is
  • -ok)
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/4 ts Fresh ground black pepper

This lovely dish can be served year-round if you have prepared some
pur”šed pumpkin and stored it in your freezer. Otherwise, use canned. People
will be impressed with this dish on a cold January evening, as it is rich
and warming. Warming is a Colonial term for serious food!

In a frying pan, saut”š the onion in the butter until transparent. Add the
flour and cook until the flour and butter begin to turn a very light golden
brown. Using a whisk, add the cream and cook until a thick sauce is
obtained. Pour this sauce into a medium-sized mixing bowl and add the
remaining ingredients, except the eggs and cream of tartar. Mix well. Then
stir in the egg yolks, one at a time. A mixer is great for this.

Whip the egg whites along with the cream of tartar and gently fold into
the pumpkin mixture. Do not overmix. Place in a buttered 1-1/2 quart
souffl”š dish and bake in a preheated oven at 350ø for about 30 minutes, or
until the souffl”š begins to expand and brown ever so slightly on top. Serve
right away.

Serve this as a vegetable course at a light dinner. It is rich enough to
stand up against anything!
