Tasty Tuesday: Pumpkin Dessert Cards

The "Holiday Season" is approaching and it is time for some seasonal desserts. These are 2 of our family favorites. They are both very mildly pumpkin-y. I don't care for full-on pumpkin pie most of the time, but these work for me.

The Chiffon pie has raw eggs in the recipe, as this pie is not a baked pie, so if you have concerns, just use egg white powder as directed.

You are welcome to save these recipe cards to print for your own personal use only. But, please, they are not for sale or mass distribution.
I use a postcard template from Avery  in Microsoft Word to print my cards. I just paste the image into the table and print on the perforated postcards.
