    Am just going to give the recipe for the filling as pie crust is pretty basic

    1/2 cup heavy cream
    1/2 cup of milk
    3/4 cup of dark brown sugar
    1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
    1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
    1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    3 eggs lightly beaten
    2 tablespoons AppleJack
    1 1/2 cups of pureed pumpkin, freshly cooked or canned

    In large mixing bowl, combine the cream, milk, brown sugar, cinnamon, cloves and ginger. Stir thoroughly, then add the lightly beaten eggs and the applejack. Stir in the 1 1/2 cups of pureed pumpkin. Carefully pour fillin into the pie shell. Bake for 4o to 50 minutes in the center of the oven until the filling is firm and center of pie barely quivers when the pie pan i gently moved back and forth. Serve warm or at room temp with vanilla ice cream or stiffly whipped cream.
