The Best Pumpkin Pie

I think we all can agree that Thanksgiving is not complete until you have had a bite of pumpkin pie.  As much as I tried though, I was never satisfied with the parve pumpkin pies!  That’s when I took matters into my own hands.  I looked and tried tons of different recipes until I came across this gem! 

This recipe for pumpkin pie is adapted from a dairy version in Good Housekeeping.  I used my usual crust recipe, which also happens to be the easiest, quickest and flakiest crust I have ever made! This pie remains a favorite in my family and is requested every year.  I am sure it will become a staple in your home!
