954. Curaçao’s Pumpkin Fritters


2 cups boiled and mashed pumpkin (drain well after boiling and immediately mash)

Approximately 3/4 cup flour

1/4 cup milk

1 egg

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 tablespoons sugar

Pinch of salt

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Pinch of baking powder

Crisco for frying (a must!)

Mix everything in blender or in a bowl, add raisins as needed, fry spoon fools on griddle with Crisco. Makes about 30 small fritters.

*If using canned pumpkin, you must double the flour.
