Pumpkin Mousse

                               
  • 5 large egg yolks
  •                            
  • 1 cup  sugar
  •                            
  • 3 1/2 cups  heavy cream
  •                            
  • 15 ounces  canned pumpkin
  •                            
  • 2 teaspoons  vanilla extract
  •                            
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons  ground cinnamon
  •                            
  • 1/2 teaspoons  ground ginger
  •                            
  • 1/4 teaspoon  ground nutmeg
  •                            
  • 1/4 teaspoon  salt
  • 1 tablespoon dark rum
  •                            
  • 1 teaspoon  powdered gelatin
  •                            
  • 3 ounces  shaved dark chocolate
            •                                                        

           Directions

                                                          
                                                                                             
    • Fill a large bowl halfway with ice water and set aside.
    •                                
    • Whisk the yolks, 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, and 3/4 cup cream together in a medium saucepan. Heat while stirring continuously with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon over medium-low heat, until thickened and the mixture coats the spatula -- about 10 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and set over the ice bath. Stir to cool.
    •                                
    • Add pumpkin, vanilla, spices, and salt to the egg mixture. Stir 1 tablespoon rum and 1 teaspoon gelatin together in a small bowl. Heat the remaining tablespoon rum, and stir in to the gelatin mixture until dissolved. Gently whisk into the pumpkin mixture. Beat 1/2 cup cream to stiff peaks, and fold into pumpkin mixture. Pour into a shallow dish, cover and chill until cold and thick enough to fall from a spoon in heavy dollops -- about 8 hours or up to overnight.
    •                                
    • Beat the remaining cream and sugar to stiff peaks. Alternately layer the pumpkin mousse and whipped cream in a glass serving dish. Sprinkle the chocolate shavings between top two layers. Serve chilled.
