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".

This creamy pumpkin pie recipe is very easy and will not disappoint anyone during the holiday season. It's a simple old-fashioned recipe full of pumpkin spices without being overpowering. Top with a little whipped cream... yummy. One great recipe from Lucille's mother-in-law! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
