Loved it and so did everyone that I gave to. : ) So moist and tasty. I didn't have pumpkin spice but used all spice, ginger, and cinnamon and it worked!

This was really good. Usually make butter mochi and my friend kept saying her pumpkin mochi was really good. So looked one up on the HE website and it was just like hers. Have made two batches in two days. Grand-kids and great grands love it.

Made this for a get together and it was a hit! People's comments included perfect pumpkin taste; pumpkin & cinnamon not overwhelming; texture is perfect where it is not too dense; this recipe is a keeper. There was one change I made - I only used 1 box of the mochi flour. Based on the other review, my mixture was not "grainy" and I did ask others that question and they said it was not. Texture was smooth.

The taste of this pumpkin mochi is really good! However, the texture is not as smooth as the butter mochi, tends to be a bit "grainy" (perhaps that is the nature of pumpkin). Everyone enjoyed it!
