“Grandma Maxine's pumpkin pie- a thanksgiving favorite! Some cans of pumpkin are less sweet than others. I sometimes increase sugar from 3/4 cup to 1 cup but I need exceed 1 cup. Note: 1 3/4 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice may be substituted for the cinnamon, ginger and cloves however the taste will be slightly different, I prefer to use the individual spices.”
