Eileen’s Pecan Pumpkin Pie (Serves 10)

My good friend, Eileen Pohly brought this pumpkin pie to a “Dinners for Eight” gathering we had with friends from Trinity United Methodist Church here in Grand Rapids, Michigan. It was so delicious, that I immediately asked if she would share the recipe. Not only did she graciously share the recipe with me, but now both of us share the recipe with you
