Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (75 g) pumpkin, fresh or canned
  • 1 cup (240 ml) milk

  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

In place of canned pumpkin, remove seeds and place a whole pie pumpkin in the oven and bake at 325°F (160°C) for 1 hour, or until a knife can be inserted through the peel. (Do not under-bake, or pie will be watery.) Discard peel. Refrigerate or freeze excess pumpkin.
