To make 8 pumpkin soufflés, begin by preheating your oven to 350°F. Place the uncut pumpkins in a large shallow dish and add 1/4 inch of water. Cover tightly with foil and bake for about 40 minutes, or until tender. Let cool.
Reheat oven to 375°F. Remove tops from pumpkins with a paring knife. Remove and discard seeds, then scoop out flesh, leaving a ¼ - inch-thick shell.
Place four cups of pumpkin flesh in a mixing bowl. Separate eggs, stirring yolks into pumpkin flesh and place the egg whites in a separate bowl. Stir flour and baking powder into the pumpkin mixture, then stir in diced Cabot Habanero Cheddar. Season with salt and pepper.
Whip egg whites into stiff peaks and fold into the pumpkin mixture. Spoon soufflé mixture into pumpkin shells, dividing mixture evenly. Place filled mini pumpkins on a baking sheet and bake for approximately 12 to 15 minutes, or until puffed and set. Dig in!

This is a wonderful recipe. It is now a Thanksgiving tradition. My husband finds the habanero cheese to spices so I mixed it with the regular sharp cheddar.
