    ....are kind of custardish and kind of hoover.

    I think I should have looked at more than one recipe. They set up fine but the The recipe didn't call for clove (which I thought was odd but I'm not much of a home made cook so whatever) or sugar. It (they actually...I got two pies out of the recipe) tastes like a pumpkin pie minus the clove and sweet.

    The recipe is titled REAL homemade pumpkin pie. I think that was the catch. It called for the pumpkin (baked and peeled from the skin), evaporated milk, eggs, ginger and nutmeg. I don't know....maybe I'm just used to a sweet pie but this.....meh. It's still warm so I'll taste it again after it's cool. I think though that I'm going to go to the store tomorrow, get another pumpkin and try a different recipe.

    I'll get a picture up of these pies though...they LOOK good but don't taste as good.

    Thanks, they sure need SOMETHING! LOL

    I've got that recipe.....I'm determined to make an edible one completely from scratch using an acutal pumpkin and not a can. *sigh* Back to the store tomorrow! LOL
