Scrumptous Fresh Pumpkin Pie From Scratch

Starting with a fresh pumpkin is the only way to make a pumpkin pie!  This recipe is tried and true and always gets rave reviews.

I’ll never forget this infamous dinner party when I distributed the recipes for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner to all of my friends and each one showed up on my door step with exactly the same bewildered look, “Please tell me if this is what it’s supposed to look like? I’ve never seen this gratin/casserole/pie before. I hope I did it right?”

And this scrumptious melt-in-your mouth pumpkin pie stole the show, baked in a toaster-oven no less!  Thanks Glenn, you’re recipe is my recipe ever since!
