I picked up the book The Kitchen Gardener’s Handbook at the Borders going out of businesses sale about a month ago. It’s kind of an odd mix of potager garden layouts (which I find interesting) and vegetable profiles (which I don’t). Scattered throughout are recipes and one in particular caught my eye: Inside Out Pumpkin Pie. With a title like that, how can anyone not be intrigued? I decided to put my new convection toaster oven and some of the Jack Be Little pumpkin harvest to use.
After I chopped off their pumpkin heads and scooped out their guts, I filled them full of the pie filling.
I hate to say this, but I felt very Martha Stewart’ish while making these. They were that cute.
They didn’t taste quite like pumpkin pie but they were good. It was a delicious fall sort of comfort food.
