      lisa ahmu’s pumpkin gingerbread with caramel sauce

      lisa was the friend who seemed to do everything perfectly. at
      christmastime, her little house turned into a festival of trees,
      while her
      kitchen smelled like heaven ought to. the best part about lisa,
      though, was
      that she acted like everything was “no big deal.”

      a young mother of
      four, lisa suddenly passed away a few years ago from a brain
      hemorrhage.
      her many friends think of her around christmastime because of all the
      things, like her gingerbread recipe, she passed on to us. . courtney

      2 1/4 cups flour
      1/2 cup sugar
      2/3 cups butter
      3/4 cup fine chopped pecans
      1 teaspoon baking soda
      1 1/2 teaspoons ginger
      1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
      1/4 teaspoon salt
      1/4 teaspoon cloves
      3/4 cup buttermilk
      1/2 cup molasses
      1/2 cup canned pumpkin
      1 egg

      Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine flour and
      sugar.
      Cut in 2/3 cup butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in
      pecans.

      Press 1 1/4 cups of crumb mixture into bottom of a 9-by-9-
      inch pan.
      Add remaining ingredients to dry mixture; mix well. Pour evenly over
      crust-lined pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes, or until
      done.

      Caramel Sauce:
      1/2 cup butter
      1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
      2 tablespoons light corn syrup
      1/2 cup whipping cream

      Melt butter in sauce pan. Stir in brown sugar and syrup. Bring to a
      boil.

      Stir constantly until sugar dissolves; about one minute. Stir
      in
      cream; return to a boil. Remove from heat.

      Serve over warm
      gingerbread
      with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Garnish with chopped pecans, if
      desired. Serves 12.
