i happen to love pumpkins

But not always as pie, so this is my take on a stuffed pumpkin for dessert

Pumpkins for dessert

·        1 medium sugar pumpkin
·        2 apples (or 1 apple and one pear), cored and diced
·        1/2 cup walnuts
·        1/2 cup raisins
·        1/2 cup cranberries
·        1/2 stick butter
·        1/4 cup brown sugar
·        1/4 cup apple juice
·        2 teaspoons cinnamon
·        1 teaspoon cloves, ground
·        1 teaspoon allspice, ground
·        1 teaspoon nutmeg
·        1/2 teaspoon ginger

hollow out the pumpkin, removing stringy interior
save seeds for roasting
hydrate the raisins in hot apple juice with butter
just pop the cranberries in the hot liquid
mix all the ingredients together and stuff the pumpkin
bake @ 325 F for  hour in a baking pan to catch any liquid
serve warn with vanilla ice cream
