Pumpkin Pie is right up there with turkey in the tradition of Thanksgiving.  After everyone is full with the festive meal, it is a wonder that there is any appetite left for this delicacy, but there always seems to be a demand.  This recipe is one of my favourites.  It has been baked in our family through generations and definitely has the flavor to remind us to be grateful.
