Roasted Sugar Pumpkin Slices

Everybody loves this dish!
Sweet from brown sugar and
spiced with ground cinnamon,
then roasted to perfection.
I first tried to bake a whole pumpkin
and decided that although whole makes
for a very good presentation these
slices have much more carmalization.
A whole pumkin is moist and these
slices have yummy crispy butter flavor.
You must use sugar pumpkins which are
smaller and sweeter than the big ones.

1 sugar pumpkin, washed clean
1 cup light brown sugar
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
After cleaning outside of pumpkin,
cut in half lengthwise and remove seeds.
Cut pumpkin into 2 inch slices.
Place slices in a glass baking dish.
Season with salt to taste.
In a mixing bowl combine melted butter,
brown sugar, vanilla, flour, and cinnamon.
Pour liquid over pumpkin slices and bake
for 45 minutes and then remove to baste
the pumkin slices with the butter mixter.
Bake until pumpkin is tender and the
sugar mixture has carmalized right good.
