Cook Time
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C / 350°F. Generously butter and flour a 2 L / 8-cup round baking dish.
  2. In a bowl, combine the pumpkin, egg yolks and brown sugar. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. Add the dry ingredients alternately with the milk to the pumpkin mixture. Stir in half the crushed cookies and all the nutmeg.
  4. Beat the egg whites until stiff, and fold them gently into the mixture. Pour into the prepared dish and sprinkle with the remaining cookie crumbs.
  5. Bake on the middle rack for 1 hour. Insert the tip of a knife into the middle: if it comes out clean, the flan is done. If not, continue baking another 15 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven, run a spatula carefully around the edge to release and unmould onto a large platter. Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve with whipped cream.
