Pumpkin pie in a pumpkin?

I read a random snippet about how pumpkin pie first started because the Pilgrims poured milk, sugar, and spices into a pumpkin and roasted the whole thing over the fire.  The next time I was at the farmers’ market, I saw a sugar pumpkin for $2.  So I thought, why not?  So basically, tonight I made the filling for a pumpkin pie (minus the pumpkin puree) and poured it into the center of the cleaned out pumpkin.  It’s been baking for over an hour and a half now and still looks like it has a ways to go.  Will it work?  Who knows!  Check back in a couple hours for Nik’s verdict!
