"I found this recipe from Kraft a few years back, the family loved this version of mashed pumpkin for a change. Potatoes are also wonderful done this way. NOTE: It depends on the moisture in the cooked pumpkin as to how much cream you may need and of course I do prefer the good "ol" aussie Kraft cheddar for this recipe! :-)"
