Pumpkin Pie

This is a great recipe for pumpkin pie that you can bake in the microwave. I found this recipe in the cookbook that came with my new Quasar Microwave that we bought in 1984. And, by the way, it is still being used daily in our home today. It has never been repaired. When we bought the microwave at Friedman's in Medford, Or, we received free cooking classes. Rich and I would go to them every chance we had. We had so much fun and learned not to be intimidated by the microwave. We learned how to cook casseroles, bar cookies, jams and jellies, candies, cakes, veggies, etc. The main thing we learned was not to listen to people when they told you that all microwaves were for was heating up coffee, weiners and leftovers.
