“This recipe is made from fresh pumpkins, not canned. This recipe is from Randy Scott. I found it on All Recipes.com. This recipe was my first time making a from scratch pumpkin pie. I read somewhere if you made a from scratch pumpkin pie you'd never use canned pumpkin again so I tried it. While this was a yummy pumpkin pie I didn't think it was any better then using canned pumpkin. I actually thought it was more work. Instead of boiling my pumpkin I baked it in the oven.”
