Pretty good recipe. I did use part heavy cream with part fat free milk (it's what I had in the fridge!), but I used less butter and flour. It thickened up pretty quick. I also added some pumpkin pie spice. If I hadn't have been out of brown sugar, I probably would have added a touch of that, too! All in all, it's very tasty and a good way to use a fresh pumpkin (I used 3 small pie pumpkins, two of them as bowls).
