This is the one pumpkin pie recipe I keep coming back to year after year. I was at a military ladies' coffee when I first tasted this pie, and it was the most moist & eggy pumkpin pie I had ever eaten. I asked the hostess, Barb, for the recipe, and she shared the recipe with me - which I believe came from her mother. I made my own changes to the recipe over the years and now I have written down my changes so that I can share my version with you. I only use fresh pumpkin in this recipe and it is well worth the little bit of extra effort. PLEASE NOTE: This recipe calls for a DEEP DISH pie plate and intended to be a egg custard textured pie. Even using a deep dish pie plate, you may still find you have a small amount of extra batter, as some deep dish pans are larger and deeper than others (mine fits all of the batter in one pie). You can use whole milks in this if you prefer, however I like the lighter taste of the skim in this. If you only have small pie plates, then you might want to prepare an extra pastry round and divide the batter between two smaller pies.
