Default Pumpkin Pie - not custard or puree

I'm not sure. The story is rather cute:

She worked a long, hard Thanksgiving Day at the Australia office. When
she returned to her hotel, they had a Miller Genuine Draft and a slice
of pie sitting there. She (always) skips beer, and ate the pie. She was
thinking "Apple, no. Maybe peach, no.", because there were chunks of
fruit in the pie.

Later, when she returned to the front desk, they asked her how she
enjoyed the pumpkin pie. That's when she found out it was pumpkin.

They cook with pumpkin a great deal in Australia; she was offered
pumpkin soup, spaghetti with pumpkin sauce, and many other items.

Thanks!
