Adorable, reasonably healthy and even kid-friendly. This works equally well for breakfast as for dessert.

Recipe Serves 2
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Roast the pumpkins for about 25 minutes, or until the flesh turns soft but the pumpkin is still intact. Remove pumpkins but leave the oven on.
- Let the roasted pumpkins cool until they can be handles. Use a spoon to gently scoop out the roasted flesh (being careful not to scrape too deeply--you want the pumpkin to retain its shape) and transfer to a bowl. Mash gently with a fork.
- To the mashed pumpkin flesh, add the yogurt, cinnamon and honey. Stir well.
- Divide the pumpkin-yogurt mixture between the two pumkin shells. Bake for 12-15 minutes, just until heated through.
- Serve immediately.
