How to Cook Pumpkin?

Pumpkin is very similar to acorn squash and can be baked in much the same way. Cut the pumpkin into at least four pieces, scooping out the seeds and discarding or saving for pumpkin seeds. Place the pumpkin on a baking sheet and dot with butter. The size of the pumpkin will determine the length of time it takes to bake. Bake at 350 degrees until tender.
