Personal Notes:
Adaline would make her mother's pumpkin pie every Thanksgiving and Christmas. The pies would be mounded with meringue and have the small syrupy drippings speckling the top. You knew it was the holidays when you smelled the aroma of her pumpkin pies coming from the kitchen. Mom (Adaline) wrote on my recipe card that this recipe has a "good flavor and is easy to make." She also said 'her' mother "always made it for Thanksgiving".
