A very happy Halloween! And in the spirit of carving jack-o-lanterns, I give you a recipe that uses the cut out pumpkin pieces. I’ve had this recipe since I was in kindergarten- my teacher Mrs. Blach gave it out to us, and almost every year since we’ve made them. Enjoy.
Yes, that’s the original ditto, from 1985! It’s seen a lot of love (& a lot of messes too) since then.
- ¾ cup flour
- ¼ cup honey
- ¼ tsp. salt
- 1 tbsp. baking powder
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp. nutmeg
- 2 tbsps milk
- Cut out jack-o-lantern pumpkin pieces
- 1/8 cup butter
- 1 egg
- Preheat oven to 350° degrees. Wash the cut out pumpkin face pieces thoroughly. Bake them until soft, approx. 30 minutes. Let them cool, then peel them and mash them. Change oven temp. to 400°.
- Mix together flour, honey, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a bowl. Add egg, butter and ¼ cup of the mashed pumpkin.
- Spoon into muffin tins and bake at 400° for 20 minutes. Remove and allow to cool before eating.
I hope you all have…
A frightful, delightful,
Terrifyingly sweet and most of all…
