This recipe uses cubes of raw pumpkin rather than canned pumpkin. Winter squash may also be used.
In medium saucepan, add 1 tbsp. of butter and 1/2 cup water to pumpkin, and simmer over medium heat, which should take approximately 10 minutes. Drain, reserving 1/4 cup liquid. Sprinkle flour gradually over hot pumpkin liquid, whisking to dissolve.
Mash or puree pumpkin. Add raisins, rum, cooked pumpkin, and remaining ingredients. Stir until well combined.
Turn into pastry lined 9 in. pie plate. Flute edges. Set in preheated 400°F oven. Bake 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°F and bake about 30 minutes longer.
