Need help with Pumpkin Pie -- Fresh or Canned? Good recipes?

DanaB | Dec 22, 2005 01:12 PM

Hi all,

My cousin has the ambition of making the best pumpkin pie ever for our Christmas dinner, and wants to do it from fresh pumpkins. I seem to recall from prior threads on this board that the pumpkin afficionados among you tend to think there is not a significant improvment in pie made from fresh versus pumpkin puree.

Am looking for your thoughts on this topic, as well as insights and recipes for the best traditional pumpkin pie!

Thanks in advance for any advice you can share!
