In large bowl, beat together eggs, pumpkin, milk, sugar, spice and salt, if desired, until well blended. Place 6 (6- to 10-ounce) custard cups in large baking pan. Pour about 2/3 cup egg mixture into each custard cup. Sprinkle each with about 1 tablespoon raisins. Place pan on rack in preheated 350° F (180°C) oven.
