Mom's Pumpkin Pudding Pie

We all have dishes that take us back to a host of happy holiday memories. For me, the ultimate time machine is this pumpkin pie. Mom was in charge of dessert at our family Thanksgiving table (we travelled to spend the day with relatives) and this pie was always in the mix. I don't ever remember her bringing home leftovers! I now fix this for my family and another generation is smitten with the cool, spiced pudding filling! Mom recently had to go gluten free and though I've called for a graham cracker crust here, it is just as delicious using gluten-free ginger snaps in the crust.
