  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cut off the top of each pumpkin, reserving the tops, and scrape out all of the seeds. Place 1/2 teaspoon butter and 1 teaspoon of brown sugar inside each pumpkin. Sprinkle ground cinnamon on the butter and brown sugar mixture. Put the pumpkin "lids" back on and arrange pumpkins in a baking dish with a little water in the bottom.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) until tender, about 45 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • These can also be baked in the microwave on high for about 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Editor's Note:
  • Miniature pumpkins are often used as fall decorations, so be sure your pumpkins haven't been treated to prevent spoilage.

These were SO GOOD and my guests loved them. I didn't quite know what to expect but they were delicious and the look on everyone's face when I came out with a pumpkin on a plate was priceless. ...

This is an easy, beautiful way to serve sugar pumpkins! However, I would add more sugar, and salt for flavor-- otherwise the pumpkin can be a bit bland. Also, cook time needs to be at least 45 m...

Mine were a undercooked so next time I'll leave them in the oven longer. It wasn't very flavorful so we cooked some cinnimon apples and put them inside the pumpkin, it was so much better!

Very yummy! this was a side dish tonight. Everyone loved it. I cut the pumpkins open with a pumpkin carving tool (halloween). I use it for most of my squash, easy to use. I used less cinnamon (e...

I made five of these, stuffed them with apple-chicken curry and served them on a bed of rice with a long sprig of flat parsley around the stem. They were a huge hit. No one missed my next dinner...

We have always called these "jack-be-littles". Anyway, they make a great side dish when stuffed with creamed spinach. Cook them about an hour.

This was ok, sort of bland. I added some apple butter, and additional spices, but it still lacked flavor. But overall it was good, just plain.

Great, YUMMMM!!!!!

I just used butter and salt inside my pumpkins, so it's kind of unfair for me to rate this one, but it turned out great anyway! The pumpkins were cooked just right and were delicious.
