Favorite Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Let it be known – I don’t like Pumpkin Pie. I will be the first to pick up apple instead. With one exception. I discovered this recipe in a cook book years ago and I will never look at pumpkin pie the same again! Granted, I still won’t eat any other pumpkin pie than this one. …but with this pumpkin pie, I lick my plate CLEAN! Yummy!
