I received this recipe from my dear friend Treasa, from Texas. We were chatting about cuisine and she mentioned her mother's (JoAda Teegarden) pumpkin pie. It brought back wonderful childhood memories - it's been many years since I enjoyed pumpkin pie. With Treasa's kind permission, I would like to share this recipe with our West Coast visitors.
