Aunt Pams Famous Pumpkin Pie

This recipe has been at the Luken cottage in Cedar Lake WI for Thanksgiving dinner for as long as I can remember. Myself and the entire family now refer to it as Aunt Pam’s Famous Pumpkin Pie. It is outstanding!

Just a minor variation from normal pumpkin pie recipes this one uses slightly less sugar and the addition of nutmeg does the trick. Enjoy!
