Favorites for left-over decoration pumpkins

Pumpkin season is over and you are left with all those beautiful pumpkin that you got to decorate for the holidays, now what? Most of us just put them in the compost. But why not have them live to their full potential and use them for some yummy dinner or desserts?

Today I’ll be sharing how I use my left-over pumpkins for a delicious, warm, creamy (without any cream) soup and for some yummy pumpkin pie.

Creamy Pumpkin Soup

When roasting your pumpkin, if you’re going to use it for a savory dish, feel free to add olive oil and salt and pepper. If you’re using it for a sweet dessert, feel free to roast as is.

* feel free to add more broth if you prefer your soup to be more soupy instead of a cream*

*Pumpkin Seeds*

*you can always make these your own by adding your favorite seasoning like cayenne pepper, if you like them spicy*

Pumpkin Pie

For my pies, I like to use Alton Brown’s pie crust recipe, but you should feel free to use your favorite, or even use store bought, whatever is best for you!

These are a few of my favorite things!
