Hawaiian Pumpkin Crunch
Aloha Fall lovers!
Leaves aren’t the only thing crunching this Fall - this Hawaiian Pumpkin Crunch is a popular Fall dessert in Hawai'i when the season changes. We added an authentic Hawaiian twist to this creamy pumpkin recipe by switching out walnuts for our island favorite - macadamia nuts! Grab your Island Harvest Organic Macadamia Nuts and whip up your next new favorite pumpkin treat.
