As the World Cooks – a foundling cookbook from 1938: Pumpkin Pie
All of the recipes assume that you know how to put it all together. Some pages it is only the ingredients and the rest is up to you. This one is fine but is only for the filling – these older women assume that you the reader will know the recipe off by heart for pastry. I have a semblance of a pastry recipe in the back of my memory but I will always look for one just to make sure. If I am feeling rich I will use a unsalted butter for a fine pastry instead of the lard that is typically used here in Canada – the lard box always has a pastry recipe on it and is decent enough for family and friends.
