the first step was to get all the seeds and pumpkin guts out and then cut it up into pieces. you have several ways of cooking the pumpkin, either microwave (yuuk, don't know one and NEVER will again,) bake (which takes 45 min to an hour) OR steam for 20 min....hmmmm i'll take the later. so i threw all the pieces in a pot and steamed for 20 mins. waited till the little pieces of hot lava cooled and then scooped out all the yummy flesh, tossed in a blender and blended till it was all smooth and even. easy peesy lemon squeezy!

|half through you take the pie out and add the walnut topping|
and here is the wonderfulness that came out and filled our tummies with pumpkin sugary goodness!
hope you make the recipe and enjoy it as much as we did!!
