HEY– Sugar Pie Pumpkins still at Bee Healthy–

New England Pie Pie Pumpkins

There are Sugar Pie Pumpkins at Bee Healthy yet!  These can be cooked down for pies, but an even simpler treat is THUS:

Cut the top off, scoop out the seeds and pulp, add sugar (or honey or agave nectar) and spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, clove), place top back on or cover with foil, and bake in oven until tender (45 minutes to an hour).  Serve as a special treat or dessert!

Don’t forget to rinse the seeds, soak in salt water, drain, and scatter on a cookie sheet to roast in the oven for pumpkin seeds!

Great way to enjoy the pumpkin spiced treat at a busy time of year!!  Cook several for a special Holiday dinner–
