This is a recipe I copied out of the local newspaper here in Louisville (The Courier-Journal). It is from the Derby City Antique Mall and is a GREAT pumpkin pie! It is my DH's favorite!! I hope you all enjoy it also!

What a splendid recipe. It really strikes a nice balance between chess and pumpkin pie. I used good quality spices and room temperature eggs. Left over filling is NO problem. I sprayed a small souffle dish with non-stick vegetable spray and poured the excess and baked along with the pie. When the small souffle had set, I pulled it and served it warm with fresh whipped cream. THIS is the pie I'll be making for the holidays this year.
