Directions:
In large bowl mix all the ingredients until smooth. When the mixture is in the pie shell sprinkle a little cinnamon on the top because it makes a nice looking top when finished.

In meantime have prepared pie crust for a 9" deep pie dish. Pour the pumpkin mixture into pie crust and bake in oven at 450 for just 15 minutes then turn oven down to 350 for another 50 to 60 minutes. Will be done when you insert a cool knife into the middle and it comes out clean.

*Stir & Roll Pie Crust which will fill the deep dish:
Measure out 2 c. flour and pinch of sugar. To the flour add 1/4 c. milk and 1/2 c. Wesson Vegetable Oil (not canola). Mix and then roll. I always roll my pie crust between two pieces of wax paper that I have lightly floured.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This pie and pie crust has come from Richard's mother, Evelyn Reid, It is in demand on Thanksgiving and often on Christmas. What is so wonderful is that her great-grandchildren request this pie also. It is simply delicious.
Edith's notes: My friend Thelma, moved to West Haven, Ct. from Ohio and brought her midwestern, warm, and friendly personality with her. We have all savored her numerous delicious dishes at United Methodist Women gatherings, etc. as well as having benefitted from her able leadership skills and her generous sharing of her spirituality with us all.
