This month allrecipes.com partnered with Campbell's. As an Allrecipes' Allstar I was tasked with making some recipes using Campbell's products. There were several recipes from which to choose, such as Quick and Flavorful Veges, Moist and Savory Stuffing, Green Bean Casserole, and Ultra Creamy Mashed Potatoes. I used several of these for my Thanksgiving Feast, but the most intriguing recipe was the Praline-Pumpkin Mousse Cornucopias, so I saved the best for last! I have used the puff pastry lots in the past, but I've never used it with a mold to make a shape before! I love how creative this is, and my wheels are turning trying to come up with some more shapes to make and fill!
Now, it is no secret that I am not a huge fan of pumpkin flavored things...but my family is, so I'm happy to make anything with pumpkin anytime. I did like this dessert in that it is very impressive looking (imo), and I love the versatility! You can use any kind of filling you like! For instance, I would love to use this pastry and fill it with the banana cheesecake filling I use in my Banana Cheesecake Donuts. That would be delicious in these cornucopias if you are not a pumpkin eater :o)
I would also like to sub in cream cheese in place of the whipped topping in the original recipe. I think the tang of the cream cheese would take these to a whole new level of deliciousness. I love to play around with flavors and look forward to using this recipe in the future many times!
