I have been making this for years. A friend brought to a potluck back in 2006 and I demanded the recipe, which she provided via a scanned copy of the magazine page where it appeared. It's comforting, delicious and a perfect departure from overly sweet pie preparations for pumpkin.

I loved this recipe. It was one of my go to recipes. Then I just forgot about it for a year and now I am looking it up to make it tonight. I think I must have had it memorized before. Enjoy!!!
