I make pretty good pies. a few relatives really like pumpkin pie, but i noticed that over the last three years (as we all watch our waistlines grow) that more and more of the family eats the filling and leaves the crust behind. I don't see any particular reason to go to all the effort of making crust just to see it tossed in the trash. I'll save all that work for the apple and pecan pie instead.
Going on line i tried looking for pumpkin pudding or pumpkin custard, and all i got were recipes for pumpkin pie. anybody have any suggestions, recipes, whatever for a crustless pumpkin filling? Do I just make it as usual and bake it in a casserole dish?
