Question by billings_kitty: Original pumpkin pie recipe from the early colonists?
I understand it was made by filling out a hallowed pumpkin shell with milk, honey, and spices, and baked in hot ashes…anyone have a real old cookbook, maybe family heirloom cookbook this might be in? Curious to try this and see how it turns out…

You can try googling authentic colonial pumpkin pie, but the pumpkin we eat today is a hybrid that did not exist back then. They used something more like squash. So, while your idea sounds sensible, it would have been made from a different vegetable entirely.
