Is the pumpkin the canned kind, like pumpkin pie filling?

Ginger, probably not since the recipe also calls for the addition of pumpkin pie spice and brown sugar.

Just found this and noticed my confusing answer last year....

Yes, Ginger, it is canned pumpkin but NOT pumpkin pie filling. There is a difference.
