"I found this recipe online about 10 years ago, and I've been making it for Thanksgiving ever since. The recipe makes two pies, so I usually make one with a pastry crust and one with a graham cracker crust. You definitely need to use a sugar pumpkin for this - NOT a jack o' lantern pumpkin. Sugar pumpkins (sometimes labeled 'pie' pumpkins) are smaller and should fit in your hand, about 8 to 10 inches in diameter. (Substitute 3 cups canned pumpkin if you can't find a sugar pumpkin.)".

Note: Pies can be made 1 day ahead, covered in plastic wrap, and stored at room temperature.
