Pumpkin Pie 1932

From my mother's notebook.
I noticed that this pie is not baked -- only the pie shell is prepared in the oven. This is a custard that is flavored with pumpkin and placed in a prepared pie shell. I suppose the pie shell could be a graham cracker crust, too, which would make it a completely no-bake pumpkin pie.
I think that may explain the difference between pumpkin pie and pumpkin custard pie. Custard is cooked on the stove top. Pumpkin pie is baked in the oven -- although in the end they are all good and all are called pumpkin pie!! Enjoy!!
