Cooking instructions for small sugar pie pumpkins:

Wash pumpkins, cut stems out and put in a baking dish in 350 degree oven with approximately ½ inch water in pan and cover with aluminum foil. Cook until tender. Scoop out seeds and strings. Remaining pulp is what you use for pie. Sometimes it may be necessary to put in blender or food processor.
