One thing you will learn at next Tuesday's 'Taste of Home Cooking School' is a bunch seasonal recipes for all skill levels.  And with the holidays coming up, this is your chance to shine for family and friends and show off what you can learn.

Here's an easy recipe off the Taste of Home web site, that will get you in the spirit (pun intended!) for the Hawk Halloween Parade coming up Saturday.

Serves 8   Prep time: 10 minutes  Bake time:  40 minutes + cooling

Here's what you will need:

>  1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin  >  1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk  >  1/3 cup sugar  >  2 tablespoons of honey  >  1 teaspoon ground cinnamon  > 3/4 teaspoon ground allspice  >  2 eggs  >  2 cups whipped topping  >  miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Easy to follow 'Taste of Home' directions:

In a bowl, combine the first seven ingredients; beat on low until smooth. Place eight ungreased 4-oz. custard cups in two 8-in. square baking pans. Fill each cup with 1/2 cup of pumpkin mixture. Pour hot water around cups into the pans to a depth of 1 in. Bake at 325° for 40-50 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Remove from pans to cool on wire racks. Before serving, top each with dollops of whipped topping in the shape of a ghost; add chocolate chips for eyes.
