Cinnamon Roasted Pumpkin
  • 1 pie pumpkin (sometimes called sugar pumpkins), halved and seeds scooped out
  • 3 TB butter
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 - 2 tsp cinnamon (depending on your preference)
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Place the halved pumpkin flesh side up on a baking sheet and butter the flesh. Sprinkle the sea salt and cinnamon over the flesh as well.
  3. Roast in a 425 degree oven for 1 hour. You can scoop the squash right out to the plate, or you can scoop the squash into your food processor or blender to puree completely if you prefer that texture. Serve the pumpkin with a pat of butter and sprinkle of cinnamon. If you are serving a bigger crowd you can definitely get at least 2 pie pumpkins on a baking sheet - if you are using a large jellyroll pan you can get 3 pumpkins on there!
