Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Arrange pumpkin halves on a baking sheet, cut sides down.

  • Roast in preheated oven until tender, about 1 hour. Set aside until cool enough to handle, though still warm.

  • Adjust oven heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Scoop flesh from pumpkin halves into a bowl; mash with potato masher. Measure 2 cups mashed pumpkin into a large mixing bowl; add sugar, amber rum, egg yolk, pumpkin pie spice, butter, dark molasses, and vanilla extract. Puree the mixture with an immersion blender or electric hand mixer until smooth and thick. Pour the puree into the pie crust.

  • Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes.

I used spiced rum instead of the Amber rum.I also ended up doubling the recipe to fill my deep dish pie pan. I covered the edge of the crust immediately and during the entire baking process which took forever. I'm sorry I didn't keep track of the time to include it here and I think the next time I try this recipe I will try 1 1/2 times the recipe instead of the 2 times. Everyone at my house loved it!!!
