Old Fashioned Pumpkin Pie

I never realized how easy it can be to make pumpkin pie from scratch. I will never go back to store bought again. The best pumpkins to use are sugar pumpkins. Just cut your pumpkin in half, scoop out the seeds and insides and roast at 350F for about an hour then once it's cooled off a bit you can scoop out the flesh and puree it.
