Initially, when my grandmother was not gas, it is baked the pumpkin in the oven. But then in the oven, it was also delicious. It was her signature dessert. Yes, the dessert!

Clean it from the skin (I use a potato peeler - very convenient).
Remove the seeds (which, by the way, my grandmother was drying on a baking sheet in the oven, and then we nibbled :)).
Pumpkin cut into pieces about 10 cm in length. Width - the width of the pumpkin.
Fold in a deep pan.
Add a little olive (if there is, it is useful, if not - sunflower oil is odorless). About - a tablespoon.
Sprinkle slices with sugar - 1-2 tbsp. I take the brown, it is more useful.
Add the spices - a bag of vanilla and cinnamon. My grandmother used to do simple sugar, vanilla has been in short supply. But I decided to improve the recipe.
All mix, spread on a baking sheet.
We put in the oven for 30-40 minutes at 180 degrees.
Serve pumpkin with sour cream or natural yogurt.
