I followed the Barefoot Contessa's suggestion and filled these with homemade applesauce and baked for about an hour. The pumpkin flesh was tender and delicious with all the flavor of the applesauce. My guests got such a kick out of them - they are perfect for a beautiful fall table!

Such a treasure. I purchased quite a few little pumkins from the farmers market and followed the directions. Then i made mashed Yams ad added a bit of brown sugar, buter, milk and spices. I filled the pumpkins with this and topped it with marshmellows. I placed in back in the oven under the broiler (to brown and melt marshmellows) and served them with the lids half-on. A real hit, i will make this again anytime!

Interesting and fun. I couldn't find the pumpkins shown in the picture. When I saw mini's and asked if they were "sugar" pumpkins, everyone said no, they're only for decoration and not good for eating. So I used a lg sugar pumpkin and used this recipe as a filling. 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 medium tart apple, thinly sliced 1 tablespoon raisins 2 tablespoons butter or margarine 2 tablespoons brown sugar 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

tasty and easy...Everyone loved them-even my mother who doesn't like pumpkin. The only problem was I wasn't sure how big or how small of the sugar pumpkin to pick.

I really loved this dish. Everyone thought it was a lovely decoration until I told them that they are to be eaten. They turned out lovely! The kids thought it was a hoot to eat them too.

Use a magic marker to make a face on the pumpkin.

Made these for my sister's birthday in October. Everyone LOVED them and they made great centerpieces. I used slightly bigger pumpkins - just had to cut the tops to fit the oven. Put them in a pretty bowl to keep the sauce from oozing out.

Very good. Added marshmallows and also needed to bake for closer to an hour for 3 mini pumpkins
