|Fresh Baked Pumpkin|
When I pulled them out, I drained the water that was left and they scooped out nicely. I scooped out the pumpkin and put it into food processor.

I added 3 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice and pureed until blended well and smooth.

I had asked Dale if he wanted a pumpkin pie. He said as long as it was a "normal" recipe. Which got me thinking. I wonder what the pilgrims pie recipe looked like? I bet it wasn't loaded with sugar. This is what I came up with for the recipe:
Pie with "sugar and normal pie crust" aka "Normal Pumpkin Pie"
16 oz fresh baked pumpkin (spiced)
2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
2/3 cup sugar
½ tsp salt
Yes, I cheated and used a ready made pie crust. Precook pie crust per instructions. While it is cooking mix together the rest of the ingredients. Pour into pie crust bake for 25 minutes with edges covered. Then another 25-30 minutes until done. Allow to set for 2 hours before cutting.
