Don't sound like the Pumpkin Pie I would call the best. Where is the molasses,(1) can evaporated milk, brown sugar ,only spices to use is cinnamon, ginger, cloves and plenty of eggs either fresh or liquid to make it like custard instead of clammy. This recipe on here as the best sounds like the Pie Social I attended in elementary school in year 1940 a person there gave us kids pieces of a Pumpkin Pie it had nutmeg in it we could not even eat so we stuffed it in a school desk when he was not looking so he wouldn't know it was so bad that we just could not eat it.

Missing my favorite ingredient!! 1 T. molasses and 1/4 tsp. cloves. I love the extra spices. I will try my recipe with 1 egg and the extra yolks. Will let you know how it turns out.
