This traditional homemade pumpkin pie is made from scratch with homemade puree. Homemade pumpkin puree can also be used in any pumpkin recipe calling for canned pumpkin. To substitute homemade puree, use 1 3/4 cups of pumpkin puree in place of a 15 oz. can of pumpkin.
Once the pumpkin puree is made, the pie is made in the same basic manner that it would be if using canned pumpkin.

Using your own homemade pumpkin puree will make these recipes extra delicious.
