The addition of molasses and toffee to freshly roasted pumpkin make this a memorable dessert! Try serving it with whipped cream, flavored with Grand Marnier and sprinkle some additional toffee on top!



Wash the pumpkin and cut it in half. Place in a roasting pan, cut side down, and roast in a 350° F oven for about 45 minutes, depending on size, until it is very tender when poked with a fork. Allow to cool slightly; remove the seeds and strings. Scrape the pulp from the shell and put it through a ricer, food processor or blender. (You may do this up to 2 days in advance and refrigerate.)

Line a 9-inch pie pan with pie dough.

Preheat oven to 425° F.

Measure out 2 cups of puree into a large mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients. Pour into the pie shell and bake for 15 minutes at 425° F. Reduce the heat to 350° F and bake about 45 minutes longer or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.


Note: Some pumpkins may be a bit watery. If you find this to be the case, spread the puree out on a sheet pan and place in a 300° F oven for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Allow to cool before proceeding.
