Every year, my husband starts to ask for this as soon as the pie pumpkins come to the produce stand, so I adapted their recipe to include fresh pumpkin. I adore cooking with fresh ingredients in season! Last year, I used an heirloom pumpkin called a “candy roaster” and it was HEAVENLY! Definitely ask for it at your local produce stand.
So how do you make a pumpkin pie from an actual pumpkin? I’ve seen a lot of pie recipes using canned pumpkin, and you could here too, but here’s one with fresh pumpkin!
