If you have picky eaters and need to disguise your vegetables or if you just want a fun fall idea, these little squash pumpkins are perfect.
All you need is Butternut Squash, nutmeg, cinnamon (or whatever spices you enjoy), raisins for the eyes and mouth and pieces of walnut for the stem.
Cook the squash as directed (I usually slice mine in half and bake or microwave it until it is soft). Mash the squash up in a bowl and add nutmeg and cinnamon to taste.
Then just scoop about 2 tablespoons out and make a small ball with your hands. Poke raisins in as eyes and a mouth and a piece of walnut for the stem.
This makes a great side dish with dinner or as a snack.
The nutmeg and cinnamon give the squash a sweet taste so it actually also goes well in ice cream.
