Mom's Special Pumpkin Pie

My mother-in-law made this pie for every holiday and we all loved it. She had seven children and each child brought along a spouse for dinner, so she had to make quite a few pies to satisfy all of us.

I have made this pie over the years and even those that do not care for pumpkin pie love this since it is spicy and not too "pumpkiny".
