This is the best pumpkin pie ever. I was not a fan of pumpkin pies until I made this for Thanksgiving dinner. Below is a few helpful hints: Serve immediately or refrigerate. You can substitute 1 3/4 tsp for pumpkin spice (The flavor is slightly different as well). Do not overcook - overcooking will make the pie crack in the middle. Try to bake the day you will serve. If you have to bake a day before serving, pop the pie in the oven for 5-10 minutes and it should bring the crust back to life.
