Recipe by ruth1978

I found this recipe with the help of my husband, who is in no way on a diet, and if you are on a diet you might be upset with this recipe. It takes a while but it is worth it! I have been using this recipe for over 3 years and I hope to pass it on to my kids. I make 2-3 pies for each month in October, November and December. Goes great with cool whip!

Worth the extra effort. This pie is the best pumpkin pie I have had. Took it to a holiday party with several professional chefs and other foodie types and it received lots of praise.
