Thank you for saving the day! I wasn't sure how to do this, but when I got 40 free pie pumpkins, I had to find out! So easy and economical. I didn't cut mine in half, just hacked the top off and saved the seeds for pepitas. Mine weren't quite done after 30 minutes, but just turned off the oven and left them overnight. Now, on to search for what do with all this pumpkin!

Great! Only difference is I chopped mine in pieces and put it in a steamer...The pumpkin was steamed soft in about 15 minutes I then easily peeled of skin with a paring knife.

Thank you for posting this very simple way of preparing pumpkin for pumpkin pie. I have always boiled my pumpkin in the past but it is so much messier then your method. I still have quite a bit of pumpkin left over and plan on making some loves of pumpkin bread on Friday.
