Take a large pumpkin, wash, cut in half and place, cut side down, in pan in warm oven.
Roast until soft, but not mushy. Scrape out the flesh of the pumpkin with a spoon or fork.
Place into colander and let drain over night in a cool place.
The next morning, put 2 cups of the pumpkin in a bowl and whip thoroughly with a fork until all lumps disappear, but avoid mashing.
Drain out as much liquid as possible, because the pumpkin should be dry.
Add the sugar, yolks of eggs, cinnamon and beat for 5 minutes.
Quickly add the cream, the whiskey and the butter, and mix well.
Sprinkle the cornstarch over the stiffly beaten whites of eggs and add to the first mixture.
Pour into a pan about 2½ inches deep which has been lined with pie pastry, and bake for one hour at 375-F. Allow pie to become cold before using.
