Pumpkin pie from an actual pumpkin!

Did you know that if you roast a small sugar pumpkin you can use it to make a pumpkin pie?  Well that's just what I did, and it makes the ABSOLUTE.BEST.PIE.EVER.

It's super easy, just cut the stem off the pumpkin, cut it in half and scoop out the seeds (like you would a cantaloupe).  Put the halves face down on a foil lined baking sheet and roast at 350 for a hour and a half.  When it's finished roasting, just scoop out the insides and you have your pumpkin for the pie filling!

for the recipe

Happy baking!
