I am making pumpkin pie from scratch, the filling is way thicker than in the video recipe I followed. Will it still cook properly?

I used 2 cups of fresh pumpkin, 2 eggs plus one yolk and one cup of buttermilk.

    I'd add a bit of cream or milk is it really is too thick but I'm sure it'll be fine without

    As Doug says, add a little cream or milk. Squash/pumpkin water content varies a lot. Fortunately you still get a tasty pie without being too picky about how wet the filling looks. Commented Nov 28, 2014 at 12:34

Are you using canned pumpkin or are you using a fresh pumpkin after roasting it. I believe you may need to add a half cup more buttermilk or regular milk to your recipe.
