Thanksgiving is one month from today! It is a good idea to practice any new dessert before the big day. If you want to make your pumpkin pie filling from scratch, here are the directions.
Wash a sugar pumpkin and cut in half. Remove the seeds.
Place in a roasting pan, with a couple of inches of water, cover and bake in a 350 oven for an hour.
When cool, the skin should easily come off of the pumpkin. Cut it into chunks and place in a food processor. Puree it until the pumpkin is smooth.
You will need 2 cups of pumpkin puree for each pie. I made two pies last Thanksgiving.
Here is the finished product. I will give you step-by-step directions on my next blog.
