Tried 'n' True: A pumpkin pie recipe from an old friend

I got this recipe from a former school teacher, who got her start from a one-room schoolhouse around West Union. Some of her students said she was strict but fair. I never knew her then.

When I met her she was retired. Icely and Harley France were nice people. I went there for rhubarb. I didn’t have any then. I had pears, apples and cherries, and we exchanged fruit. We visited a lot back then.

She made this recipe, and we sat down with coffee or milk. It was so good. Icely and Harley are gone now, but I still make her recipe.

This pumpkin pie is a little different but great. Hope you enjoy as much as I have.

Fluffy Pumpkin Pie

1 cup graham cracker crumbs

1⁄4 cup margarine

2 tablespoons sugar (sweetener)

1⁄4 cup chopped nuts

• Mix all together and press into the bottom of a 9” square pan. Bake 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool. Two envelopes unflavored gelatin, 2 cups pumpkin

1⁄2 cup cold water

1 cup milk

1⁄2 teaspoon salt

1 - 7 oz. jar Marshmallow Creme

11⁄2 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice

1 - 8 oz. contain Cool Whip

n Soften gelatin in water, stir over low heat until dissolved. Add milk, cool. Combine marshmallow creme, pumpkin and spices mixing with wire whisk, until well blended.

• Gradually add gelatin mixture, mixing until blended. Cool until thickened but not set. Fold in 2 cups Cool Whip. Pour over crust. Chill until firm. Top with remaining Cool Whip. Good for Thanksgiving.
