Here is another recipe of my Moms. She always used squash instead of pumpkin. My dad grew these great big white crook necked squash, that were for baking pies. My dad would etch in my kid's names when the squash was tiny and then as it grew so would there names! We would cut the squash up and cook it and then freeze it up in containers for pies. Pumpkin works fine, instead of the squash.
