I'm joining Beth from Food as Art who is hosting a pumpkin party today.
This is our youngest grandchild Sam two years ago when he went trick or treating.
Doesn't he make a sweet little pumpkin?
We've never grown pumpkins, but we do like to eat pumpkin pie with whipped cream and other desserts.
Pumpkin Pie Squares
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter
1 cup chopped pecans
1-14 oz can pumpkin
1 can Eagle Brand
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. each ginger and cinnamon
1 cup coconut
Combine the flour, oats and brown sugar then cut in the butter until crumbly, stir in the pecans.
Press evenly into a 9 x 13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
Combine the remaining ingredients except the coconut.
Pour over the baked base in the pan and sprinkle with the coconut.
Return to the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
Enjoy with a dollop of whipped cream.
The onset of autumn is the perfect time to bring out pumpkins for decor outside......
~ FIVE LITTLE PUMPKINS SITTING ON A GATE ~
Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate,
The first one said,
"Oh my, it's getting late."
The second one said,
"But we don't care."
The third one said,
"I see witches in the air."
The fourth one said,
"Let's run, and run, and run."
The fifth one said,
"Get ready for some fun."
Then whoosh went the wind,
and out went the lights,
And five little pumpkins rolled out of sight!
THANKS FOR VISITING
This is Sam's sister Mia who wore the pumpkin costume first 5 years ago.
Could it be that she's a ham for the camera?
