Does anybody have a good pumpkin recipe

  1. I have a killer pumpkin pie recipe.
    I am looking for a recipe that is a desert like dish that you cook in the pumpkin itself. I thought I saw something like that here on the BB. I have looked at past posts but can't find anything.
    Anybody have a good recipe ??????

    Ewwwww - to me, "pumpkin" and "good recipe" are mutually exclusive! Yeuccchhhhhhh

    Once I tried a cool-sounding recipe where you put some kind of tapioca pudding (should have been my first clue) into a hollowed-out pumpkin and bake it. Then you slice it into slices with pudding and cooked pumpkin. Ewwww, that was just the worst.

    Wish I could help. We did have that thread not too long ago, but I don't recall reading anything re" preparing a dessert inside the pumpki, although I have heard of it before.

    Maybe from a McCall's or other magazine...I'd search on and try dessert pumpkin or baking in pumpkin

    If you get a chance, give us that killer pumpkin pie recipe....

    I think the consensus was, most of us bake the pie on the Libby's can, just like our mama's used to do..

    I think it was Heather who posted a magnificent pumpkin pie recipe...

    She is probably recuperating today and manana from her birthday, she probably isn't available for posting.'

    She could probably use a couple of slices about now with some Hazelnut Cream Mocha Java with whipped cream.

    Sorry, mama, I couldn't be any help.

    I can think of some fun things to use pumpkins for such as on a buffet table:

    Hollow out pumpkin and stuff with fruit salad

    Use small hollowed out pumpkins for dips, you could bake the hot artichoke dip in the pumpkin, that would be good too.

    What about filling the pumpkin with chili, surrounded by corn chips, shredded cheese, diced onions, you could use little pumpkins or gords for the cheese,onions, salsa, etc...

    I don't know about roasting the pumpkins, I think you could put whatever you bake in them.

    Could fill one with candy for the kids

    How about a pumpkin filled with jello salad

    Let us know what you make

    Hi Mamaval,
    I looked in my handy dandy million recipe disc(from walmart) and found several stuffed pumpkin recipes:
    ! small pie pumpkin
    10-12 apples.sliced
    1 tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
    1 c. brown sugar
    1 heaping cup raisins

    Cut top off, and remove seeds. Rub insides with molasses. Mix sugar and spice together.Sprinkle molasses with mixture. Layer apples,raisins,nuts,alternately with sugar mixture until pumpkin is full.Replace top,wrap in foil.Bake at 350 degrees 2 hours,until pumpkin is soft.

    1 pumpkin 5-7 lbs.
    8 slices bread,slightly toasted and cubed
    1 c. raisins
    1 c. brown sugar
    1 c. melted margarine
    1 c. evaporated milk
    1 apple,diced
    1 c. walnits
    1 8oz. can crushed pineapple
    1 tsp. cinnamon
    1 tsp. cloves

    Cut top from pumpkin, and remove seeds. Combine other ingrediants in bowl, and pour into pumpkin. Replace top. bake At 350 degrees for 2 1/2 hours

    Hope these are the type you are looking for. I`ve not tried either..Also disc had several that used a rice,meat,veggies type of filling also.....
    Love the disc...look for it at Walmart..only $ Million Recipes of course a lot are duplicates, but still more than I will ever use.....
