 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      3/4  cups          dried apricots
    3      tablespoons   rum
    1      pound         unsweetened pumpkin pie filling
    4      tablespoons   melted butter
      1/2  cup           packed brown sugar
      1/4  teaspoon      ground allspice
      1/4  teaspoon      cinnamon
      1/4  teaspoon      nutmeg
      1/2  cup           pecans -- chopped
      3/4  cups          heavy cream
 
 In a small saucepan, combine the dried apricots with the rum. Bring this to
 a boil, cover and simmer for 1 minute. Let apricots cool in the pot, covered.
 
 In a mixing bowl combine the pumpkin, butter, sugar and spices and chopped
 nuts.
 
 When the apricots are cool enough to handle, cut them into 1/2 inch pieces
 and stir them into the pumpkin. Chill the mixture. Whip the heavy cream
 until stiff and fold most of the cream into the mousse, reserving some
 whipped cream if you wish for decoration.
 
 Chill until serving time. Transfer mixture to wine goblets. If you are
 serving this to company, then spoon remaining whipped cream into a pastry
 bag and pipe some whipped cream rosettes into center of mousse in each glass.
