      RECIPE METHOD

    Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Cut a thin slice from the base of each acorn squash and set upright on a baking sheet. Brush the tops with 1 tablespoon of the butter. Wrap the shallots loosely in foil.

    Brush the cut sides of the sugar pumpkins with 1 tablespoon of the butter and season with salt and pepper. Set cut side down on another baking sheet.

    Roast the sugar pumpkins for about 50 minutes, or until tender; roast the acorn squash and shallots for about 40 minutes, or until the shallots are soft and the pumpkins are golden. Keep the squash warm; let the sugar pumpkins and shallots cool slightly. Squeeze the soft shallots from their skins, coarsely chop the shallots and transfer to a bowl.

    Scoop the sugar pumpkins from their skins, add to the shallots and mash with the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, the cream and the chopped thyme. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon the mixture into the acorn squash, garnish with thyme sprigs and serve warm.

    Giving Thanks,
    Giving Thanks, In the years since Abraham Lincoln made it a national day of thanksgiving in 1863, Thanksgiving has become our most beloved holiday, and 97 percent of American's (more than 280 million people) eat turkey on Thanksgiving Day. But beyond the bird, the menu of this quintessentially American meal is as varied as the cultures of our nation's melting pot--and every recipe tells a story. Giving Thanks is a fascinating ode to Thanksgiving food and culture from the ultimate Thanksgiving authority, Plimoth Plantation, the museum of the 17th-century Plymouth Colony. Perfect for parents, kids, teachers, history buffs, and of course Thanksgiving cooks, Giving Thanks is a true keepsake cookbook, meant to be shared and enjoyed year after year. Thanksgiving specialists Kathleen Curtin and Sandra Oliver trace the colorful history of the holiday, from the real story of the First Thanksgiving to 21st-century customs. But beyond the compelling history, Thanksgiving is about food... so too is this delicious assortment of more than 80 recipes, from appetizers to desserts, old-fashioned mincemeat pies to modern pumpkin cheesecake, generously seasoned with plenty of fascinating trivia.
