“Jack Be Little” Miniature Pumpkins

These are so cute as individual servings and they add a nice touch to a  Fall meal.  The tiny pumpkins give you just a taste of a wonderful  side dish during the cooler months.

Jack Be Little Miniature Pumpkins

  • 1 miniature pumpkin (per person)
  •  butter
  •  brown sugar
  • sprinkle of nutmeg and cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350°F.  Carefully cut off the very top of each pumpkin, about 1/4 of the way down.  Scoop out the seeds and strings.

Put a little butter, brown sugar and spices inside each pumpkin; put the top back on.  Place them on a cookie sheet and bake for 40-60 minutes depending on the size of the pumpkins.  You want them to hold their shape and for the mixture not to leak out.

Comment:  Instead of the butter mixture you could add fresh homemade applesauce.
