TRIED ‘N’ TRUE: A pumpkin dessert for Christmas

Merry Christmas! I love pumpkin pie. Pumpkin any way you have it is good. We had a friend who lived in Decatur, Ill., and when we went to visit Pauline, she always made this. Dr. Ferris Highsmith, Pauline’s husband, always said she made this only when they had company. Of course most husbands say that. I know Gene is always saying I don’t feed him unless someone comes over. Of course all of us wives believe that. Ha! Ha! Hope you enjoy this as much as we do. Thanks, Pauline.
