This has A LOT of potential! I think that the buttermilk is a start; without it there is absolutely no flavor here! It's not enough, however. I added a little pumpkin pie spice, which I would do in the future. I think that what this really needs is a healthy dose of butter and brown sugar to the buttermilk mixture! Or at least sprinkled generously on top! BTW, the instructions didn't say what to do with the vegetable oil; I added it to the buttermilk mixture. My pumpkin blistered because it took a third 45 minutes to cook properly. Also, when cleaning out the inside, I found a grapefruit spoon with its jagged edge made short work of it. Thanks, 2Bleu!

This recipe is purely awesome! It is a show stopper and very easy to make, too. The oven does all the work, which makes it perfect for entertaining. I included the optional dried fruit (raisins in my case) and found they really added a lovely touch. The filling set perfectly in the time stated and tasted great, too!
Ill surely make this recipe again, its a keeper! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this here with us, 2Bleu!
