Fall is here! After a crazy hot summer, we’re all ready for cooler temperatures. And although they aren’t here just yet, there are other signs of fall popping up everywhere.
Like harvest in Texas fields. And pumpkins. Because what’s fall without pumpkins?
And Floydada, Texas is home to the Pumpkin Capital of the USA!
Pumpkins aren’t just for decorating. Small pumpkins, usually called Wee Bees or Sugar Pumpkins, are perfect for everything from savory dishes to the sweet one I’m going to help you with today.
Little pie pumpkins, as we call them at our house, are perfect desserts to get you into the spirit of fall. The warm, buttery flavors are also rich in vitamins A and C!
Now that the pumpkins are empty shells, place them face up on a lined baking sheet and sprinkle in the brown sugar and pie spice evenly over the four pieces. Then place a few cubes of butter in each pumpkin half. Bake for 45 minutes. Let set for five to 10 minutes before adding a scoop of ice cream and serving warm.
This is a great way to start fall. Be on the watch for cooler temperatures. They’re bound to be here sooner or later. And in the meantime, enjoy what fall has to offer here in Texas. From all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
