  1. Cut pumpkin in half and remove seeds. Place cut side down on a cookie sheet lined with lightly oiled aluminum foil. Bake at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the flesh is tender when poked with a fork. Cool until just warm. Scrape the pumpkin flesh from the peel. Either mash, or puree in small batches in a blender. Increase oven temperature to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C.)
  2. In a large bowl, slightly beat eggs. Add brown sugar, flour, salt, 2 cups of the pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and evaporated milk. Stir well after each addition.
  3. Pour mixture into the unbaked pastry shell. Place a strip of aluminum foil around the edge of the crust to prevent over browning.
  4. Bake 10 minutes at 450 degrees F (230 degrees C), then reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake an additional 40 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Remove the strip of foil about 20 minutes before the pie is done so that the edge of the crust will be a light golden brown. Cool pie, and refrigerate overnight for best flavor.

Well, I thought I messed up. I baked the pumpkin for an hour, it was tender when I poked it. As I scraped the flesh away from its skin, it was gritty and dry, not mushy or smooth as I thought it...

I think Libby's canned recipe was better. This was a good recipe, but not as fantastic as the ratings led me to believe it might be. I was told at Thanksgiving that they wished I'd made my swe...

I have baked 4 of these. The first time I followed the recipe to the letter. Great pie, but just a little more spice is needed for my family's personal taste. The second time I baked it, I in...

I made this recipe with my jack-o-lantern the day after Halloween. It tasted great even with regular pumpkin (note: one good sized jack-o-lantern makes about 4 pies). My husband loved it! One su...

I would give 4.5 stars but don't have the option. Reason being is that I use my own combination of fresh ground spices instead of store bought pumpkin pie spice. The recipe itself is great other...

This will be the 5th Thanksgiving that I have made this pie. Let me just say that it is FANTASTIC. Fresh pumpkin really makes this pie. I agree with other reviewers about adding extra spices, bu...

This is the best pumpkin pie that I have ever had. Even my hard to impress father-in-law loved it. I usually bake several pumpkins at once and freeze the puree in 2c (enough for one pie) batches...

Fantastic! This was the first fresh pumpkin pie I have ever made and it turned out fabulous. I used one med sugar pumpkin, but after cleaning the pumpkin I sliced it into pieces and put it in a ...
