This display is from my friend Judy’s house. Her husband Dan grew the pumpkins and candyroasters, sharing half of one with me. After cooking down the pulp in the crockpot I had four quarts to use and freeze. Candyroasters are usually sweeter than most pumpkins, and are preferred in these mountains.

Other than this fun use for pumpkins, these pumpkin bars are my choice. Pumpkin Bars Recipes

This year I used the candyroaster in the filling. I also doubled the filling, except for the sugar and butter. It has twice the servings of a pumpkin pie, and is easier to make. With a little whipped cream on top they go fast!
