George_Braziller: You may find this hard to believe, but the Cool Whip is optional.Personally, I'll always take a bit of vanilla ice cream over any kind of whipped topping, including freshly-whipped cream.--Ag

Walkdog262, commenters on this forum never read the article before posting. They just skip straight to the comments section.

I didn't realize you were supposed to feed the pumpkins.

Ag - Sorry, when I read the recipe and it called for a "dollop of Cool Whip" I just about lost my cookies. That is the nastiest thing that has ever been created that is passed off as food. Cheez Whiz in a can is the only thing that tops it.

There are hundreds of variations on this... but here is the one that seems closest to the one we enjoyed two or three years ago:http://tasteoftwinsburg.blogspot.com/2007/11/pumpkin-dump-cake.htmlI guarantee you: Once you take the first bite, you'll toss your fork or spoon into the sink, and head out back of the house to fetch a shovel... it's that good!--Ag

Pumpkin pie, cheesecake, bread, cookies, muffins. My family will eat any of these I make. I also make pumpkin cheesecakes for friends and family. That can't wait till this time of year to find out who gets the few that I make. I've even sold a few to others that have tried the ones my friends and family get. I love this time of year. The house smells soooo good!!!

The pumpkin roll that my mom makes every year at Thanksgiving just for me. She makes apple dumplings for everyone else but I have a BAD association with cooked apples that goes back 30+ years. I won't go into the details but it involves eating a bunch of apple crisp and an apple dumpling before going to bed and then coming down with the flu in the middle of the night. Ick. Can't eat cooked or raw apples to this day.

I submitted my response early enough in the morning that I didn't really pay attention to the OTS pics/responses. Levi sure bears a strong resemblance to Adam Savage, doesn't he?

I can't believe nobody has commented about the second guy's response. He uses a pumpkin shell as a casserole! Sweet.

pie would be the number 1 but i like the bread as well and get a lot of requests for it. i normally give a loaf of pumpkin bread in a basket and a couple of the pumkin brews available at this time of year for each neighbor and the kids teachers.

Working off of Marion's idea..go a bit further. Take a small pumpkin and clean out the insides, then fill it with vodka...maybe a splash of cinnamon and allspice. A little mango juice. A pumpkin cooler?? Happy Halloween.

Not a big pumpkin eater. Marion has a good idea. I will eat pumpkin pie but I do not really crave it or anything.

autie 5 years, 6 months ago

I believe Marion has hit on a capital idea...a great dinner party idea for the fall season. A pumpkin ice chest, damn. Why didn't I think of that..

Eric Neuteboom 5 years, 6 months ago

Good idea Marion! I'll have to bust out the pumpkin cooler when we carve!

Marion Lynn 5 years, 6 months ago

Well, you see, you cut out the top of the pumpkin, then clean out the inside, fill the pumpkin with ice and insert a couple of bottles of beer or wine and wait for them to cool.Works on mixed drinks also if you use the right kind of glass.
