Yesterday I turned one of these into this.
Such a lovely way to enjoy the pumpkin harvest. ;-)
(this was such a nice variety of pumpkin to grow - almost all flesh and seed but hardly any stringy bits)
Two and half years ago I came across this recipe and a new tradition was born - make pumpkin cinnamon buns out of one of our pumpkins. This, for me, is what I love about tradition - they don't actually have to have been done for ages. They are easy to start at any time - you simply find something you love...and then you continue to do it regularly (although make no mistake - we don't limit these to only harvest time!).
(with cream cheese icing made from cream cheese and a touch of honey)And what's not to love about pumpkin cinnamon buns! We have giant pumpkins from the garden again this year but we've decided not to cook them all up this year, rather to use all our smaller ones instead but I did get a good laugh remembering the year I did cook the giant ones.
Several more pumpkin recipes to work our way through (some on the sidebar) and always happy to hear any of your favourites. ;-)
