This is my grandmother's pie recipe and is excellent for fresh pumpkin. I cut my pumpkins and bake them for an hour or so, depending on the size of the pumpkin, and them mash them through an old colander that has a pestle with it. Also passed down from my grandmother. I freeze 4 cups of processed pumpkin so that I always have the exact amount of pumpkin I need for a pie.

This recipe is great EXCEPT for one huge mistake: The amount of pumpkin in the original recipe is TWICE what it should be. Other reviewers say to double the spices; the fact is, to make one pie, jut halve the amount of pumpkin and you'll be fine. Two cups of pumpkin works out to the contents of a single sugar pie pumpkin.

This recipe is OK, except that you need to double all the spices, except the salt. Plus, I don't know how deep the author's pie plate is, but I made two 9" deep dish pies from this recipe. If you include the time needed to bake the pumpkins, this is not quick or easy. However, getting the kids in on doing the mashing is fun. I like the texture of this filling a lot, it is firmer than most others, less custard-like. For that reason alone, it is worth taking the time to use fresh pumpkins and make this.

This recipe is fast and easy. I ended up using canned pumpkin for this one, and it turned out fine. Make sure you use a deep-dish pan, it makes a lot! Needless to say, I am a beginner at cooking, but this recipe still made a great pie.
