Does anyone know,if I cut mine in half and scrap out the seeds and bake to get the fruit out can I use that for pie?

I don't think those kind of pumpkins have much flavor and won't make a good pie.  You need the small sugar pumpkins to make pie and use for baking.  They are really yummy.

My dh said he still remembers when his mother make pumpkin pie from scratch.  It was terrible.  Like Leslie said I think you have to have a special sweet pumpkin.

If you know anyone that has chickens they like them.  Or put them in the flower beds to make compost.
