So far it looks really, really good and I stuck a knife in it and it came out clean after about an hour of cooking it. Here's the recipe I used:http://www.pumpkinpatchesandmore.org/pumpkinpie.php
I also used their pie crust recipe, but had to use butter because I didn't have any shortening here at home.http://www.pumpkinpatchesandmore.org/piecrust.php
I had never used a whole pumpkin before either, but it was actually easy.
I'll let you know how it tastes a little later after dinner!
I got one of the bigger pie pumpkins at the store so that was a mistake. I had a little bit of the filling left over after I filled up the pie crust. It was really liquidy when I poured it in, but it firmed up nicely!
Oh and the buttermilk pecan pie recipe (I really need to try this one again!):http://www.recipezaar.com/53704
The boyfriend already fussed at me for making the pie today (I haven't baked since July 4th!) because if it's there he will eat it LOL
