Recipe: Pumpkin Fries

With the Fall season and all of things pumpkins I find myself trying to come up with creative ways to cook pumpkins other than pie.   In my quest I have found the perfect marriage of fall flavors and fun.
1 Pumpkin
Cooking Spray
Pumpkin Pie Spice
Directions:  Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.  Chop pumpkin into manageable sized pieces (with skin still attached) and place onto tray.  Cook until tender around 45 minutes to an hour depending on your oven.  When pumpkin is cooled slice away skin, from here you can either puree it or refrigerate it for a different day.  Take either cooled or refrigerated pumpkin (without the skin) and cut into fry like strips and place on greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour depending how brown you like your fries.  Be sure to flip half way through to ensure crispness on both sides.  Enjoy!
