If pasta Alfredo is mac and cheese for grown ups, then pumpkin roll is a Little Debbie snack for grown ups; all fancy and shit.

That's an excellent way to describe fettuccine Alfredo! I recently had my first bowl of it, and I now I want try it at every Italian restaurant I go to.

I would prefer a fresh pumpkin though. I know I know... stupid fresh food always...

If you use a fresh pumpkin. Then remove all the seeds, bake it in oven until tender. Also make sure the pumpkin you buy is for a pie and not just the kind for decorations. Pie pumpkins are usually smaller, darker orange and feel heavier for their size. Right now, our stores are filled with huge pumpkins that are more for jack-o-lanterns than pie making. They're usually runny and flavorless after cooking.

After you've removed and mashed the flesh, taste it should have a very strong pumpkin flavor. That first taste will determine how much sugar and spices, you'll need to add later on. Personally I've done both, and really prefer the canned.

Canned pumpkin is far easier and predictable to work with. You still need to taste it.

Or just cheat and use sweet potatoes with pumpkin pie spice.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

That's not really cheating - sweet potato pie is a thing. Yes

The pumpkin is loose until firmly set after coming out of the oven, that's why the toothpick test, which works great for cakes, fails for pumpkin pie.

When it is done, when you slide the knife, it shouldn't look wet like you just poured it and come back together. It should stay separated -- like you just cut it a knife.

The toothpick will make you over cook the pie, not usually fatal, but just not as good.

Now it's possible that your grandmother just knew what it looked like when it was done - people who bake a lot especially pies, just know. Smile

Sure it is, if you're calling it pumpkin pie.

Honestly I don't notice a huge difference in taste when you add the pumpkin spices. We have done sweet potato pie more than once and I still prefer bourbon pecan pie to either.

Pumpkin pie is a custard pie and that is very different than cake, so the done-ness test is different.
