It was amazing. My sister in law and mother in law both said THIS is the pumpkin pie we will now have whenever we have pumpkin pie. Funny because other reviewers said they got that feedback too!
I cooked a small pumpkin like as described, then scooped out the insides (minus the seeds which I roasted - also yum) let it cool, pureed it with a hand blender, and then squeezed out all of the liquid through cheesecloth. That left a little bit more than 2 cups but I used it all. I also increased the spices (and added nutmeg and cloves) and reduced the honey to 1/2 cup and added 1/4 cup maple syrup (several reviewers suggested this). Turned out perfect. I also noticed that the filling was a typical consistency (others said that it was very liquidy) so maybe that had to do with squeezing out the liquid? It also made just enough for 1 pie. Highly recommend!
