1. Pumpkin Pie

Nothing says fall like sweet and tasty pumpkin pie. After the Halloween visitors have left, cut up the jack-o-lantern into small enough pieces to fit in a pot. Will the pot with water or apple cider along with spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and star anise and boil until the pieces are soft. Carefully peel the skin away once they are cool enough to handle. The pumpkin can then be pureed and added to your favorite pie recipe.
