Best Pumpkin Pie!

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Goji Girl

I got this from last year's Better Home & Garden's November issue. The article said it was originally published November 1955. I made it early to test for Thanksgiving, and fell in love with it! My mom was doubtful when I described it (she doesn't like change), but was impressed when she tried it. Of the 3 pies I made for the actual Thanksgiving meal, this one disappeared the fastest! I'm definitely sticking with this recipe. Prep time doesn't include making the pie crust.

Nice pumpkin flavor. I made this last week for company and everyone loved it. Made for PAC 2011.
