My great grandmother, who left us at the age of 101 in 1980, use to make this pie but she didn't call it pilgrim pie. The crust is awesome. I rolled it out between two sheets of wax paper and forgot to flour it so I had to do it again and it was just as flaky as the apple pie I made with the crust. I altered the pumpkin recipe as I added 12oz of vanilla spiced old southern comfort egg nog instead of the milk and I used agave nectar in place of the honey as there are a few people who are diabetics and this has a low glyscemic index for them. I also used it in the dough. None of my family could tell that I didn't use any sugar or honey in the recipe and they loved it. It turned out to be a very creamy pie I also use the pie filling and made a custard for those who don't like crust with their pies. It also turned out very good.
