The Fall has presented us with lovely weather; the sun is shining softly, colorful leaves are chasing around in wind swirls. I have been riding my bike almost everyday through the neighboring farms. The air is filled with scent of freshly plowed earth, ripe pumpkins and green cabbages /I am in Germany, after all/.

Stuffing pumpkin with mushrooms and cream sounds pretty simple, but the combination of sweet and salty tastes and earth flavors makes a wonderful autumn vegetarian meal ... if you love pumpkin, of course;)

This recipe is a fusion of autumn flavors. It is easily prepared and a true delight for the senses. Wash and seed a small to medium Hokkaido pumpkin. It has delicate and mild flavor similar to chestnuts. Slice into 1 inch thick slices.

I found this recipe in a Burda magazine from the 80s. I added a bit from myself and the result was four small and succulent apple pies. Cover the bottom and sides of the baking form with puff pastry. In this case, I am using 4 small ceramic dishes. Pierce the dough at the bottom with a fork, to avoid puff bubbles while baking. Refrigerate while preparing the filling.

It's a perfect autumn day; outside, the wind is tossing the raindrops back and forth, forth and back; inside, roasted pumpkin and cinnamon flavor is coming out of my oven...I am baking pumpkin strudel /Tikvenik/.
