  • 2 Pie Pumpkins
  • 2 Leeks
  • Sage
  • Chevre
  • Butter
  • 1/2 C Hazelnuts

I cut the pumpkin in quarters, then cut the quarters into roughly straight hunks (pictured right). Then I cut them into slices with the mandolin set on the thickest setting (left).

Do the cookie cutter trick again, this time with a much smaller disk.

Toss the disks in olive oil and salt. Roast in a sheet pan for half an hour at 350.

Coarsely chop the leeks. Mince the sage. Sweat with the sage in 3 T of butter.

Roast, hull, and chop the hazelnuts. Butter the sides of a baking dish, and layer with (leek, cheese, pumpkin, leek, cheese, pumpkin, hazelnuts). (I only used half the tube of goatcheese pictured below.)

You've seen hazelnuts before; I just really liked this picture.

Pour in the cream and bake at 325 for 40 minutes.

It's a shame this wasn't such a photogenic dish, because it tasted great. (Goat cheese makes everything taste better. ) It might have been my favorite from the pumpkin list.
