How could anyone forget that perfect meal which Grandma prepared with LOVE.  I remember my grandmother's Thanksgiving dinner as if it were today.  We would go into the dining area and set at this large table to enjoy our meal.  

Papa would say grace and then Grandma would say, "Well what are we waiting for?"  Everyone would laugh.  Grandma would begin to pass the bowls around and we all joined in.  

Grandma was a wonderful cook.  She would have that perfect roasted turkey with dressing, gravy and cranberry sauce.  I can't forget the creamy mashed potatoes, green beans, sweet potatoes casserole, homemade yeast rolls, iced tea and pumpkin pie.  It would be the same menu every year, but it was always delicious.  I would eat until my stomach hurt.

When I became an adult, my Grandmother shared her pumpkin pie recipe with me.  She always said it had a special ingredient.  It was "made with love."

Use prepared pie crust from the frozen department in your local grocery store.

To make filling us fresh pumpkin, it tastes much better than canned pumpkin.

Filling:

2 cups cooked, mashed pumpkin
1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporate milk
2 beaten eggs   
1 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin spice 
1/2 teaspoon salt

To prepare cooked, mashed pumpkin.  First, cut the pumpkin in half.  Remove seeds.  Place aluminum foil on cookie sheet.  Second, lightly grease foil.  Third, place pumpkin cut side down on foil.  Finally, bake for 30 to 40 minutes at 325 degrees
or until done.  Cool.  Remove pumpkin meat from the peel.  Mash or blend until smooth.

In a large mixing bowl, combine pumpkin mix,  milk, beaten eggs, brown sugar, pumpkin spice, salt and blend well.  Blend well by hand or electric blender.  Pour mixture into unbaked pie shell.

Bake for 10 minutes at 450 degrees.  Reduce temperature to 350 degrees.  Bake for another 40 minutes or until the toothpick inserted in center of pie comes out clean.  Remove and cool.  Place in refrigerator until cold.  Top with whipped cream if desired.  Enjoy
