    I love the recipe on the Libby's can! That's what I had growing up. My friend said she prefers her mother's recipe. Well, I was wondering what that could be. I found this online and wonder if it's like the pie her mom used to make:

    Pumpkin Pie Recipe
    The Frugal Housewife, by Susannah Carter, 1803

    For common family pumpkin pies, three eggs do very well to a quart of milk. Stew your pumpkin, and strain it through a sieve, or colander. Take out the seeds, and pare the pumpkin or squash, before you stew it; but do not scrape the inside; the part nearest the seed is the sweetest part of the squash.

    Stir in the stewed pumpkin, till it is as thick as you can stir it round rapidly and easily. If you want to make your pie richer, make it thinner, and add another egg.

    One egg to a quart of milk makes very decent pies.

    Sweeten it to your taste, with molasses, or sugar; some pumpkins require more sweetening than others.

    Two tea-spoonfuls of salt; two great spoonfuls of sifted cinnamon; one great spoonful of ginger.

    Ginger will answer very well alone for spice, if you use enough of it. The outside of a lemon grated in is nice.

    The more eggs the better the pie; some put an egg to a gill of milk.

    Lemon rind sounds strange.

    You might really enjoy this video, the man specializes in reintroducing very old recipes. He also has a new video about an 1839 recipe for pumpkin pie.
