Pumpkin Fudge

3 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter
1 can evaporated milk (2/3 cup) (5-1/3-ounce)
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 package butterscotch-flavored pieces (12-ounce) (2 cups)
1 jar marshmallow creme (7-ounce)
1 cup chopped pecans
1 teaspoon vanilla

Butter a 13x9x2-inch baking pan. In a heavy 2-quart saucepan, combine sugar, butter, evaporated milk, pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat. Boil over medium-low heat till mixture registers 234 (soft-ball stage) on a candy thermometer, stirring constantly (should take about 25 minutes).

Remove from heat and stir in butterscotch pieces till melted. Add marshmallow creme, nuts and vanilla. Mix till well combined. Pour mixture into prepared pan, spreading evenly. Cool at room temperature. Cut into squares. Wrap tightly and store in refrigerator. Makes 3 1/4 pounds.
