Serves 8 to 10 | Prep Time 25 minutes | Cook Time 60 minutes


1 whole pumpkin 5-6 pounds
2 1/2 to 3 cups of sliced apples, skin on
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 stick butter
2 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped course
1/2 cup candy corn

Cut the top off the pumpkin, save top.

Scoop out seeds.

Mix all remaining ingredients in a bowl. Transfer to pumpkin

Put lid back on and place pumpkin on a sturdy cookie sheet.

You will probably have to remove one of the racks in your oven and lower to the lowest level.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

Serve apple filling over French vanilla, maple walnut, or butter pecan ice cream.

Note: Buy a pumpkin that is wider rather than tall. Do not over bake or the sides will collapse.

I don't know who Arthur is, but we had this years and years ago when we played in a Pinochle group. I have been making it ever since and am always asked for the recipe. If you can keep a pumpkin till Thanksgiving, it makes a great dessert for that feast.
