I remember this show fondly, so I was happy to find the recipe. We ended up with 6 extra pumpkins from a carving contest and it seemed a good time to experiment. Mine also did not set up-however the resulting soup was absolutely yummy. I'll do some research on custard ingredients to try and adjust. It will be worth the effort.Lovely presentation with the cooked pumpkin.
I made this recipe years ago and am so glad I found it again. It tasted just like pumpkin pie and it was nice to scrape out a bit of the cooked pumpkin with the filling when serving. I look forward to trying it again.
This did not set up. Making it was a TOTAL WASTE OF TIME. I POURED THE LIQUID OUT AND MADE REGULAR PIES. I weighed the pumpkin, and everything was done properly. Man!!
Mine didn't turn out but then I used milk in place of the whipping cream...Could have been my bad...Didn't set up proper and had melted butter floating throughout even tho I used the right amount.
I loved the idea of this, but didn't want to try it out on a huge pumpkin for just me and dh. So I halved the recipie and used two small pie pumpkins instead. It was wonderful. I needed to turn them half way through the cooking.
