Instructables
Now why would you want to make your own pie when you can just go to walmart and buy a can of already made pie filling; or worst, an already made FROZEN pie? well its simple there's no satisfaction in it! I can just as easily go buy a pie and put it in the oven ,take it to the party, and end it there; but I would love to boast on how I made a pie, from a seemingly useless colounary fruit. and maybe brag a bit to my mom so that my sister's brownies don't get all the attention!
And remember to make the pie the day before the party, 'cause it usually takes up to 8 hours to make!!

Step 1: Get a pumpkin

you should always find a nice healthy looking, fresh pumpkin. and remember to get the small eating pumpkins and not the large carving pumpkins.

Step 2: Disect your fruit

get you strongest knife and pop the stem off, then cut them into quarters like in the picture.
and do be careful it's kinda' hard.
then scoop out the guts!
put into a large baking pan.

Step 4: Scrape the orange stuff off the other orange stuff.

scrape the fruit off the outer skin.
(sorry no pic)

Step 5: Spin spin spin!!!

take your moist orange flakes and measure out 15 oz.. then move to the nearest blender and puree'. add 6 ounces of your carnation milk to loosen it up.

Wot a smashing idea, re: squash. I have never tasted pumpkin pie (I'm British) before but after seeing this receipe, I am going to give it a try. I may invite friends to sample, so we can celebrate our first taste of pumpkin pie together!
Not sure when that will be as I am so busy at the moment, hopefully before the end of the year, LOL. Thanks for sharing.

Make sure to use pie pumpkins and not carving pumpkins. Also you can use squash instead of pumpkin if you want, it comes out pretty much the same as far as I can tell.
