  6. Add in pumpkin, vanilla, and rum. Beat thoroughly. Sift and beat in the rest of the dry ingredients. Beat completely.
  7. Preheat oven to 350.
  8. When crust is prepare and uncooked in cooking dish, pour in pumpkin pie and spread to edges.
  9. Then take a spoon and drop about 5 spoonfuls in various places around the pie, using all the batter. Take a butter knife and swirl.
  10. Then if you are adding a lattice, apply. Optionally coat lattice with egg white wash and sprinkle whole pie with coarse sugar.
  11. Cover pie with tin foil. Place in oven for 15 minutes.
  12. Remove foil. Cook until both lattice and filling are done. About 10 to 15 more minutes.
  13. I like to remove from the pie dish and serve as a tart in a covered cake stand. Chic!
