I would love to give this at least 10 stars I've made this one for over 37 years my mother made it before me. I can't make just one pie at Thanksgiving I must make 6 to keep all the family members happy so they and have a pie to take home and leave us with 2 pies.Which my DH and DS quickly polish off.This recipe was from a booklet from the 1950s by a well known canned milk company. Even though it has a lot of different spices I can't think of with spice I would leave out.Now if I misplace the recipe I won't panic I'll have it here on zaar.Thanks again
