Pumpkin pie problems!

Whenever I make a pumpkin pie the crust and top seem to brown up before the center is fully cooked. After it cooks it is usually okay a little runny sometimes but everything tastes okay. Would still like to know of anyone has tips to keep this from happening?

You might also try "insulating" your pie by placing a baking stone beneath your pie plate. Most ovens bake unevenly, and I find that using a baking stone in addition to your regular cooking vessel insulates and helps regulate the heat.

Sounds like your oven may be running hot. Test it with a thermometer, and/or try setting the temperature down by 10 degrees or so. You could also put foil over the edges as they brown. Also, only bake it till there's still a liquidy center about an inch in diameter. It will continue cooking when you take it out of the oven.
