    1 hour

    This is a very eye catching (and delicious) side dish or dessert if you can find little pumpkins. Very autumnal and pretty!

    Talk about festive! This is such a cute idea and it was a great not-so-sweet dessert.  -  29 Sep 2008

    This was my 1st time making any kind of pumpkin from scratch and not out of a can, let alone mini pumpkins. This had a very nice taste, but Probably because I'm a pumpkin novce, it tok me a long time to prepatre these. I used a whole lot more applesauce and spices for my 3 pumpkins. I ended up finishing these in the microwave due to time restrictions. Almost everyone liked the taste, but not the stringiness of the pumpkin. Dont know if that's the nature of the pumpkin or my baking. Whatever, I was asked to not make again. No more mini pumkins, may just go back to the canned stuff.  -  07 Oct 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
