My sister, and My Old Recipes
My sister, Nadine, made this one Thanksgiving and every one loved it. It has a different crust and it tends to stick a bit to the pan, so be sure to grease the pan, with butter or cooking spray. This pie is a real winner.

How to Make Dina's Famous Pumpkin Pie


  1. For the crust,Melt butter in large pan. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well. Remove 1/2 cup
    for topping. Firmly press mixture on sides and bottom of pie plate. (Dina
    doesn't say to do this, but I buttered my pie plate, as the oat crust can
    sometimes be difficult to remove). Bake at 350 for 10 to 15 minutes. Cool before
    adding filling
  2. For filling,Mix sugar, spices, pumpkin, dry pudding and mix well. Add evaporated milk; mix
    thoroughly. Cook until it boils, about 10 minutes. Bring to full bubbling boil.
    Cool for 10 minutes. Stir. Pour into shell. Refrigerate several hours. Garnish
    with cool whip and reserved topping.
