My husband & I loved this. I added my own spices & didn't use the pumpkin pie spice. It was very easy to do and came out wonderful.

I understand what an earlier reviewer meant by expecting flan and getting pumpkin pie. It's not that the recipe wasn't good-- it works, it presents well. But flan is so delicately flavored, and this just isn't. It's a lot like a pumpkin pie sans crust. Not worth the trouble for us-- I prefer either regular flan or pumpkin pie.

It tasted like pumpkin pie filling and the glaze was cloudy with pumpkin. It tasted good, but I was expecting flan! A little disappointing.

I made this as an accompaniment to Christmas dinner, I felt that it was very delicious. I read several previous reviews before I made it noticing that a lot of reviewers felt that it tasted more like pumpkin pie than flan. The starch in the pumpkin is what prevents the mix from turning into a normal creme, and I tried to get the proportion a little more accurate to ensure good creme'iness. I also prepared the flan in four square ramekins than an 8 x 8 square dish. I loved the presentation that came by using that instead. I think to get a more natural tasting flan, you need to use ramekins, and watch the time they are in the oven. I found that the right time is about 38 minutes. I simply loved a twist that pumpkin provided in this flan recipe. Thanks for sharing!
