RECIPE BACKSTORY
This is my mother's pumpkin pie recipe. I have also made it with sweet potatoes. This is NOT GLUTEN FREE if you use a standard pie crust. I have made it with a nut meal crust and it turned out okay, but really, if you want GF, just make the filling recipe, put it into individual serving bowls and have a pumpkin custard instead. :)
