On Saturday, my daughter picked a small pumpkin (one equal to two of these small pumpkins in this photo) from our back yard. I washed and cut it into two. She cleaned out the side. We baked it at 350 degrees for 1 hour. She removed the skin and measured out the pumpkin. We had exactly 2 cups of pumpkin. Just the right amount for a 9" pie.
We used this Joy of Cooking Pumpkin Pie Recipe. I have to say that this pie was so much tastier than making one from a can of pumpkin.
