Mini pumpkin soufflés bring the flavors of autumn to your table. Serve alongside gingersnaps.


  • 6 eggs, at room temperature, separated
  • 3/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • Sugar for dish


  • Heat oven to 375°F. Coat four lightly greased 8-oz soufflé dishes evenly and completely with sugar. Place in 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan.
  • Beat egg whites and cream of tartar in mixer bowl with whisk attachment on high speed until foamy. Beating constantly, add 1/2 cup sugar, 2 Tbs at a time, beating after each addition until sugar is dissolved before adding the next. Continue beating until whites are glossy and stand in soft peaks.
  • Beat egg yolks in separate bowl on high speed until thick and lemon-colored. Fold in pumpkin and pie spice. Gently but thoroughly fold yolk mixture into whites until no streaks of white remain. Pour into soufflé dishes, dividing evenly.
  • Place pan with soufflé dishes on rack in middle of 375°F oven. Pour very hot water into pan to within 1/2 inch of top of dishes. Bake until soufflés are puffy and delicately browned, 15–20 minutes. Serve immediately.
