The original recipe uses vanilla extract, however almond extract adds more flavor    Spray a small saucepan with cooking spray and place about 1/2 cup of sugar into a saucepan and heat – stirring constantly until the sugar melts and forms medium brown caramel….perhaps seven minutes    Transfer the caramel to a serving dish and set aside    Prehat the oven to 350F      combine 1/2 cup of whole milk and 1/4 cup evaperated milk in a small saucepan using medium heat    Reduce to a low simmer and keep the milk warm    Bring 4 cups of water to a boil  and hold on side    Whist 2 eggs and 2 egg yolks – with the remaining 1/3 cup of sugar and 1 tsp almond extract together with 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 1 tsp cinnamon    Fold 1 can of prepared pumpkin (two cans will serve six to eight people) into the egg mixture and then fold into the evaporated milk   Transfer the entire mixture into the serving dish and place the serving dish onto a bake pan  Pour hot water into the bake pan until it reaches 1/2 up the serving dish side    Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the flan is set    Let it cool    Place a desert plate on top of the flan dish and invert so the flan slides out    Syrup should flow onto the sides of the dish    Place in the refrigerator until ready to serve and  make sure each serving gets an extra spoonful of the melted carmel    Have a Happy Turkey Day!
