Prize Pumpkin Pie

Here is the pumpkin pie recipe I have used for the past 2 years at Thanksgiving...I doubled the recipe and it turned out great...super easy to make too (with all the ingredients I needed on the counter and ready to go, it took 10 minutes to prepare)...I even had enough to make 4 small ramekins in addition to the 2 pies! I also froze these in advance and once defrosted you couldn't even tell that it had been frozen, freezing did not affect the texture at all! Always delicious!
