RECIPE BACKSTORY
This is a recipe of the stovetop Pumpkin Pie that my grandmother used to make. I would often stand next to her and hand her the ingredients as she needed them then take over stirring until my arm hurt. She didn't actually use a recipe when she made it and didn't even know how much of each thing to put in she just added until it "looked and smelled right" I did write it down as she made it and this is as close as it's going to get.
