The Tale of Peter Pumpkin: A Halloween Story

Peter was a very happy pumpkin. He lived on a cutting board next to a baking dish down the counter from a toaster oven.

Unfortunately, it wasn't a very safe neighborhood for pumpkins. One day, Peter got stabbed in the head.

Peter died.

Then a zombie spoon came along and scooped out his brains.

Peter was baked until his flesh was soft. Then his skin was removed and his flesh (about 2 cups of it) was mixed with 2 eggs, 2/3 cup of brown sugar, 1 1/4 cups of milk, a pinch of salt, a tablespoon of maple syrup, a teaspoon of cinnamon, a half teaspoon of cloves, and half a nutmeg grated. This concoction was blended with a stick blender then poured into a traditional round pumpkin coffin. The coffin was placed in a 425° oven for 10 minutes then the oven was turned down to 350° and Peter baked until a knife inserted into the center of the coffin came out clean.



Happy Halloween!
