Cooking whole pumpkins isn't that hard. Be sure to use small sweet pumpkins that specifically say they are for desserts or pies. Don't just roast your Jack-o-Lantern! Of course you can substitute canned pumpkin in this recipe. You'll need a couple cups, but adjust as needed.

The apricots are the secret to this recipe. Be sure to start with less sugar, then add more as needed, as your dried apricots will be pretty sweet.

Enjoy this spread on toasted English muffins in the morning.
