Author's NOTE- The secret to excellent tasting pumpkin pie has
little to do with the pumpkin itself (I started with fresh pumpkin
instead of canned and could tell very little difference) and all
to do with seasoning. The reason for baking in large batches is
that it allows for use of greater amounts of seasoning.
Cool pies for at least one hour before slicing and serving. Cover
finished pies with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to
Serve with Cool Whip or Redi-Wip Cream topping.
