Carving Pumpkin Pieces
Evaporated Milk (roughly 2:1 ratio to roasted pumpkin)
Pumpkin Spice Blend (Or mixture of Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Ginger and Cloves)
Freshly Brewed Coffee
Whipped Cream and Cinnamon Sticks
Preheat oven to 400 celsius. Wash your pumpkin pieces. Dry and toss in canola oil. Lay pieces out on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15 minutes, turning halfway through.
Cool pumpkin and blend with evaporated milk, brown sugar, pumpkin spice and salt. Add more evaporated milk, spice and sugar until desired consistency is reached. I like mine milky!
Add a tablespoon or two to a coffee mug. Pour coffee over and stir. Top with whipped cream and cinnamon, if desired! Happy Halloween!
