Lea VaughnI received this recipe on a postcard from my sister-in-law, Dottie Vaughn, in 1970 when we lived at 924 Sunset Ridge Drive, Danville, Illinois.  This pumpkin pie recipe has always been my favorite!  The original recipe name was “Prue’s Pumpkin Pie”, but I figure I have made it enough, I will make it mine! If you’re making your own pie crust, this is a wonderful recipe I found in a church recipe book years ago.

    Lea made this for one of our Wednesday night suppers at Kinney Ave Christian Fellowship recently and everybody raved about this pie! I personally liked it because the spices in the custard were “JUST RIGHT”. I had stopped making pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving because they were just too spicy. So…….Lea…….thank you, thank you, thank you for restoring my faith in making a perfect pumpkin pie!!
